Vermont Lieutenant Governor. He was educated in Johnson and graduated from Vermont Seminary in Montpelier. Stearns then followed his father into the business of manufacturing butter tubs and other wood products, and eventually expanded the family business into other areas of the lumber business, including logging lands in Canada. He also became active in other business ventures, including owning a dry goods store and a granite quarry and stone products business, and serving as a Director of the Union Bank and Trust Company of Morrisville. Stearns was active in local politics and government, including service as Chairman of the Lamoille County Republican Committee, and Johnson Town Treasurer. He was elected to the Vermont House of Representatives from 1886 to 1887 and the Vermont Senate from 1888 to 1889. In 1904 he was elected Lieutenant Governor, serving until 1906. C.H. Stearns Company is still active in Johnson as a convenient store and gas station, and one of his partnerships, Parker and Stearns, still operates as a construction supply and equipment business.
