Emerson Columbus Harrington
Birth: Mar. 26, 1864
Madison
Dorchester County
Maryland, USA
Death: Dec. 15, 1945
Cambridge
Dorchester County
Maryland, USA

Maryland Governor. He received bachelor's and master's degrees from St. John's College in Annapolis and became a teacher and school principal. He studied law and became an attorney in 1898. A Democrat, Harrington was Dorchester State's Attorney from 1899 to 1903. He was appointed state Insurance Commissioner in 1910 and elected State Comptroller in 1911. Harrington won the 1915 election for Governor and served from 1916 to 1920. His support of Prohibition and voting rights for women caused him to lose popularity, and he served just one term. After leaving office he continued to practice law and became active in banking. (bio by: Bill McKern)
