US Congressman, Diplomat. Born in Bethlehem, New York, he graduated from Schenectady's Union College in 1861 and later studied at Albany Law School. During the Civil War he served as a first lieutenant and adjuntant of the 177th Regiment, New York Volunteer Infantry. Following his discharge he was admitted to the bar in 1864 and started a legal practice in Albany, his home base for the rest of his life; he was Albany County's Collector of Internal Revenue (1871 to 1874) and District Attorney (1874 to 1877). In 1878 Bailey was elected as a Republican to the Forty-fifth Congress to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Terence J. Quinn; he was reelected to a full term and served until 1881. He went on to presidential appointments as US Consul in Hamburg, Germany (1881 to 1885) and as Surveyor of Customs at Albany (1889 to 1894) before returning to private law practice. Bailey was also a delegate to the 1888 Republican National Convention. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
