US Congressman. Elected as a Republican representing Colorado At-large in the Fifty-eighth and Fifty-ninth Congresses, he served from 1903 to 1907. Born in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, Brooks was educated at Brown University and Boston University's law school before being admitted to the bar in 1888. In 1891 he set up a legal practice in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and became increasingly involved in state politics. He was a delegate to the Republican State Conventions of 1900 and 1907, serving as chairman in the latter year. Declining to run for a third term in the US House, Brooks returned to Colorado and became a real estate developer. In his last years he was a trustee of the State Agricultural College in Fort Collins, Colorado, and of Brown University. He died in St. Augustine, Florida. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
