US Congressman. Elected to represent Vermont's 1st District in the Twentieth and two succeeding Congresses, he served from 1827 until his death. Descended from early Vermont settlers, Hunt was born in Vernon and graduated from Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire in 1807. In 1812 he was admitted to the bar and settled as a lawyer in Brattleboro. He served four terms in the State House of Representatives (1811, 1816, 1817, 1824), and in 1821 became first President of the Old Brattleboro Bank. Hunt initially ran for Congress as an Adams candidate before joining the Anti-Jacksonian faction. He died at 44 in Washington, DC, where a cenotaph exists for him at Congressional Cemetery. During his short life he managed to greatly expand his family's financial holdings and at his death the Hunt estate was estimated at $150,000. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
