U.S. Congressman. He graduated from the Yale Divinity School in 1834, was licensed to preach and assumed Congregational pastorates in West Woodstock, Connecticut, (1834-47). In addition, he was a member of the Connecticut State House of Representatives, (1847-52), engaged in newspaper work and was a popular anthropological writer. Relocating to Boston, Massachusetts, in 1852, he was owner-editor of the Worcester Spy newspaper and a delegate to the Republican National Convention in 1860. In 1863, he was elected as a Republican to the Thirty-eighth, Thirty-ninth and Fortieth Congresses, serving until 1869. Not a candidate for reelection, he resumed his anthropological writing and newspaper interests until his death at age 74. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
