US Congressman. Elected as a Republican to represent New York's 23rd District in the Fifty-fourth and Fifty-fifth Congresses, he served from 1895 to 1899. The son of a prominent iron manufacturer, he graduated as a civil engineer from Schenectady's Union College in 1885 and from Columbia Law School in 1888. Admitted to the bar in 1889, he practiced law in Port Henry for several years before following his father into industry, serving as director of three iron ore companies. His two terms in the US House of Representatives were uneventful and he was not a candidate for renomination in 1898. He then returned to his business interests. Foote died at St. Luke's Hospital in New York City after an illness of several months.
