Death: Dec. 21, 1900

US Congressman. A Republican, he represented New Jersey's 2nd District in the US House of Representatives for two terms, serving from 1881 to 1885. Brewer was born in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, and educated at the Trenton Academy and the Delaware Literary Institute in Franklin, New York. His first elected office was in the New Jersey State House of Assembly (1876). For most of his professional life he had a pottery manufacturing business in Trenton, and was elected president of the National Potter's Association in 1879.
