US Congressman. Educated in law at Hamline University St. Paul, Minnesota, he was admitted to the bar in 1891 and commenced law practice in Canton, Illinois. In 1896, he was elected prosecuting attorney of Fulton County, Illinois and was in office when he enlisted in the Illinois National Guard and served in the Spanish-American War. Returning from the war, he resumed his position of prosecuting attorney and was a member of the Illinois State House of Representatives, 1903 to 1913. In 1915, he was elected as a Republican to the Sixty-fourth Congress and served until 1917. Not seeking re-nomination, he was appointed to the Judge Advocate General's Department in 1917 and served as a Lieutenant Colonel in the US Army during World War I. After the war, he served as a delegate to the Republican National Convention of 1920. In 1930, he was elected as a Republican to the Seventy-first Congress to fill the vacancy caused by the death of US Representative Edward J. King and was reelected to the Seventy-second Congress, serving until 1933. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
