Attorney and politician. He graduated from Burlington High School and received Bachelor of Philosophy (1914) and Master of Arts (1915) degrees from the University of Vermont.

He graduated from Harvard Law School in 1918 and joined the Army for World War I, serving as a Private at Camp Devens, Massachusetts from September, 1918 until receiving his discharge in December.

He then began a law practice in Chittenden County. A Republican, Bailey represented Colchester in the Vermont House of Representatives from 1921 to 1922.

When Winooski separated from Colchester in 1922, Bailey authored the city charter and served as Winooski's first Mayor. He represented Winooski in the Vermont House from 1923 to 1924, and served in the Vermont Senate from 1929 to 1931.
