Vermont Governor. He graduated from Tufts College in 1901 and studied law while serving as Deputy Clerk of the Washington County Court and Reporter for the Vermont House of Representatives. A Republican, Wilson served in the Vermont House of Representatives from 1915 to 1917 and was Judge of the Washington County Court from 1917 to 1923. In 1925 he returned to the Vermont House, holding office until 1927 and serving as Speaker. He was a Vermont Senator from 1927 to 1929, and Lieutenant Governor from 1929 to 1931. In 1930 he won election as Governor and served two terms, 1931 to 1935. Afterwards he practiced law in Chelsea with F. Ray Keyser, Sr., Deane C. Davis and J. Ward Carver. Their firm is regarded as Vermont's best ever collection of legal talent, producing two Governors (Wilson and Davis), one state Attorney General (Carver), and one state Supreme Court Justice (Keyser). Wilson was a partner in the reorganization of the Vermont Copper Company, serving as its Secretary and President. In 1952 he was the driving force behind the establishment of a community hospital, the Chelsea Health Center. Wilson was also interested in higher education, serving as a member of the Tufts College Alumni Association and serving for over 50 years on the Norwich University Board of Trustees, including 15 years as Chairman. Norwich's Wilson Hall is named for him. (bio by: Bill McKern)
