Idaho Territorial Governor. He served as governor of Idaho from 1866 to 1870. He was appointed by President Andrew Johnson to replace Caleb Lyon, who had been charged with misappropriation of public funds. In 1867 he helped negotiate a treaty with the Bannock and Shoshone Indian tribes, establishing the Fort Hall Reservation in southern Idaho. Prior to serving as governor he served as a member of the Oregon State Senate, and was one of the first pioneer physicians of Oregon's Willamette Valley. (bio by: Nils M. Solsvik Jr.)
