Oregon Governor, US Senator. Trained in the law, he moved to Oregon in 1872 to teach. Served in the "Linn County Rifles" a volunteer group who were sent to combat Indians in Eastern Oregon. Active in Oregon politics, he became Governor of Oregon on January 15, 1903. He served two terms, supporting causes such as the initiative and referendum amendments, and protection of the salmon industry through open and closed fishing seasons.
