Calvin Stewart Brice
Birth: Sep. 17, 1845
Death: Dec. 15, 1898

US Senator. When the Civil War started he was attending Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and enlisted with many of his classmates in the Union Army in May 1862. Mustered in as a Private in Company A, 86th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, he served until his discharge in September 1862, serving in the field in (West) Virginia. He returned to his studies, graduated in 1863, and worked as an educator briefly before returning to fight the Confederacy. He recruited a company that became Company E, 180th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and was commissioned its Captain and commander on October 1, 1864. He served through the end of the war, and was honorably mustered out on July 12, 1865, receiving the brevet of Lieutenant Colonel, US Volunteers. He then attended the University of Michigan, graduating with a degree in law, and was admitted to the Ohio Bar Association in 1866. He rose to political prominence in Ohio, serving as Chairman of the Democratic National Committee Chairman. He was elected as a Democratic Senator from Ohio to the United States Senate, serving a single term from 1891 to 1897. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
