US Congressman. He graduated from Dartmouth College in 1819, studied law and began practice in North Anson, Maine in 1823. Bronson served in the Maine House of Representatives in 1832 and 1834, and served in local offices including Justice of the Peace. In 1841 he was the successful Whig nominee for the US House of Representatives in a special election to fill the vacancy caused when George Evans was elected to the US Senate, and served one partial term from May, 1841 to March, 1843. Bronson did not run for reelection and moved to Augusta after his term expired. In 1846 he served in the Maine Senate, and he was the unsuccessful Whig nominee for Governor in 1846 and 1847. In 1850 he moved to Bath, where he served as US Collector of Customs until 1853. From 1854 to 1857 Bronson was Sagadahoc County Probate Judge, and he was an unsuccessful candidate for the US House in 1856. Bronson died while visiting his son, the rector of Christ Church in Saint Michaels, Maryland, and was buried in the church's cemetery. (bio by: Bill McKern)
