Theodore Tilton
Birth: Oct. 2, 1835
New York
New York County (Manhattan)
New York, USA
Death: May 25, 1907, France

Poet, journalist, editor, novelist, orator. Supporter of social reforms, including woman suffrage. In a notorious 1874 sex scandal he sued his friend and mentor, Henry Ward Beecher, for alleged adultery with Mrs. Tilton, nee Elizabeth M. Richards. The trial resulted in a hung jury. His popularity waned after the trial. In 1883 he exiled himself to Paris. He died there and was buried at Barbizon. (bio by: Jan Franco)
