Ohio Governor, Judge. Born in New Haven, Connecticut, he moved to Cleveland, Ohio in 1830 with his family when he was a child. He attended Western Reserve College and studied law at Harvard University. He was admitted to the bar in Ohio in 1847 and became partners with Salmon P. Chase and Flamen Ball. He was elected by the state legislature as Judge of the Superior Court of Cincinnati and served from 1851 to 1855. He then accepted an appointment as City Solicitor until he returned to the Superior Court in 1859. He twice declined a seat on the Ohio Supreme Court. Hoadly resigned from the bench in 1866 and resumed his law profession. A Democrat until the emergence of the Republican Party, he later became a member of the Liberal Republican Party before becoming a Democrat again in 1875. In 1873, he was a delegate to the Ohio State Constitutional Convention and was the temporary chairman of the Democratic National Convention in 1880. Elected as Ohio's 36th Governor, he served from 1884 to 1886. Hoadly lost some of his prestige and popularity in office when he delayed before enacting the militia to dispel violent rioters in 1884 and also made unfavorable decisions during a coal mining strike. He was unsuccessful as a candidate for reelection in 1885 and resumed his law practice. He moved to New York in 1887 where he died in Watkins Glen in 1902 when he was 76 years old. His father, George Hoadly, was the Mayor of Cleveland, Ohio from 1846 to 1847.
