Henry Adams Bullard
Birth: Sep. 9, 1788
Middlesex County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Apr. 17, 1851
New Orleans
Orleans Parish
Louisiana, USA

US Congressman. He graduated from Harvard University in 1807, studied law, and became an attorney. In 1813 he was military secretary for José Álvarez de Toledo y Dubois during his unsuccessful 1813 expedition to liberate Texas from Spanish rule. Bullard later settled in Natchitoches, Louisiana, established a law practice, and served as a Judge of the District Court. In 1830 he was elected to the US House of Representatives as an Anti-Jacksonian and served one full term and part of another, March, 1831 until resigning in January, 1834. Bullard left Congress to become a Justice of the Louisiana Supreme Court, serving until 1846, and acting as Louisiana's Secretary of State in 1839. In 1847 he resumed practicing law, and became a Professor at the University of Louisiana Law School, and he served in the Louisiana House of Representatives in 1850. The same year he was elected to the US House as a Whig in a special election held to fill the vacancy caused when Charles Magill Conrad resigned, serving from December, 1850 to March, 1851, and dying just six weeks after the completion of his term. Bullard was the first President of the Louisiana Historical Society. He was originally interred in Girod Street Cemetery, a Protestant cemetery established in 1822. It fell into disrepair and in 1957 the remains of whites were moved to Hope Mausoleum and African Americans to Providence Memorial Park. The location is now the site of the New Orleans Centre shopping mall's parking garage. (bio by: Bill McKern)
