Isaac McKim
Birth: Jul. 21, 1775
Baltimore City
Maryland, USA
Death: Apr. 1, 1838
Baltimore City
Maryland, USA

US Congressman. He represented Maryland's 5th District in the US House from 1823 to 1825 and from 1833 to 1835, and its 4th District from 1835 until his death. A native of Baltimore, he received a public school education and was initially active as a merchant. During the War of 1812 he served as aide-de-camp to General Samuel Smith in the defense of Baltimore (1814). His first public office was as a member of the State Senate (1821 to 1823). In 1822, when General Smith resigned from the Congress to take a seat in the US Senate, McKim was elected to the fill the vacancy; he was subsequently reelected to a full term and served from 1823 to 1825. An early proponent of the railways, he temporarily left national politics to become a director of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Co. (1827 to 1831). McKim's five terms as a Congressman saw him change parties three times (from Republican to Jackson Republican to Jacksonian). He died in Baltimore. There is a cenotaph in his memory at Congressional Cemetery. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
