Fletcher Dutton Proctor
Birth: Nov. 7, 1860
Windsor County

Death: Sep. 27, 1911
Rutland County

Governor of Vermont. One of four Proctors to serve as Governor, he graduated from Amherst College in 1882. Proctor was employed at his family's business, Vermont Marble, becoming President in 1889, a position he held until his death. He also served as President of the Clarendon & Pittsford Railroad and the Proctor Trust Company. Proctor enlisted in the National Guard in 1884 and was promoted to First Lieutenant before resigning in 1887. He served in several local offices, including town selectman and school board member. A Republican, from 1886 to 1888 he was Secretary of Civil and Military affairs (chief assistant) for Governor Ebenezer Ormsbee. Proctor was a member of the Vermont House of Representatives from 1890 to 1892, and served as Speaker. He served in the Vermont Senate from 1892 to 1893, and in the Vermont House again from 1904 to 1905. He was Governor from 1906 to 1908. As Governor he rejected his father's fiscal conservatism, declaring that the state had a "a higher duty than to live cheaply." Proctor advocated progressive forestry policies, reorganized Vermont's courts and reformed the commission that regulated utilities and railroads. After serving as Governor Proctor returned to Vermont Marble, where he worked until his unexpected death. His brother Redfield Proctor, Jr. and son Mortimer both served as Governor, and his father Redfield Proctor served as Governor, US Secretary of War and US Senator. (bio by: Bill McKern)
