Samuel Dickie
Birth: Jun. 6, 1851, Canada
Death: Nov. 5, 1925
Albion
Calhoun County
Michigan, USA

Social Reformer. He was a national speaker for the Prohibition Movement in the late 19th and early 20th century. The chairman of the national Prohibition Party from 1887 into the 1890s, he served in its leadership positions for twelve years. During this time the Prohibition Party was headquartered in Albion, Michigan. Only the fact that he had been born in Burford Township in Ontario, Canada kept him from being the Prohibition Party candidate for President of the United States. In 1889 he formed a partnership with the John G. Wooley in the publication of the magazine "New Voice", which espoused the views of the Prohibition Movement and had a large nationwide circulation. His debate with Mayor Rose of Milwaukee, Wisconsin about the liquor problem gained much attention in the nationwide press. At this time he toured the country speaking and debating, and spoke in every city containing over 20,000 inhabitants at the time. A professor at Albion College, he served as Mayor of Albion, Michigan from 1896 to 1897, and as President of Albion College from 1901 to 1921. (bio by: Frank Passic, Albion Historian)
