US Congressman. Elected as a Republican to represent California's 14th District in the Fifty-Second Congress, he served one term, from 1891 to 1893. This marked his only time in public office. Cutting was born in Westport, New York. Orphaned at age 10, he wandered west and worked as a farmhand and clerk in Wisconsin and Illinois. During the Civil War he served in Taylor's Chicago Battery and the Chicago Mercantile Battery. By 1877 he had moved to California, where he established a wholesale fruit business and was active in the National Guard. He also assisted in the organization of the California Coast Guard and eventually became a Brigadier General, commanding its Second Brigade. Following his two years in Congress Cutting moved to New York City and began investing in the infant automobile industry. In 1907 he retired to his hometown of Westport. He died during a trip to Toronto, Canada. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
