Allen Miller Fletcher
Birth: Sep. 25, 1853
Indianapolis
Marion County
Indiana, USA
Death: May 11, 1922
Rutland
Rutland County
Vermont, USA

Governor of Vermont. He was educated at Willston Seminary in East Hampton, Massachusetts and became a banker and businessman with homes in Indianapolis, New York City and Vermont. A Republican, he was a Proctorsville Village Trustee and served in the Vermont House of Representatives from 1902 to 1903, the Vermont Senate from 1904 to 1905, and the Vermont House again from 1906 to 1911. He was then elected Governor, serving from 1912 to 1915. Fletcher was selected by the legislature after a three way race including a Progressive party nominee prevented any candidate from obtaining a popular vote majority. After leaving the Governor's office, Fletcher returned to his business interests, and was an unsuccessful candidate for the Republican US Senate nomination in 1916. He died of a cerebral hemorrhage while staying at Rutland's Berwick Hotel. Fletcher's family made numerous contributions for civic causes in Cavendish and Ludlow, including constructing and donating Ludlow's Fletcher Library in 1901. His home "The Castle" is now an inn and restaurant near Okemo Mountain ski resort. In addition, his heirs donated the Ludlow property that is today the Fletcher Farm, a non-profit educational center that offers instruction in the arts. (bio by: Bill McKern)
