US Congressman. He was a successful attorney who was admitted to the bar as a minor in 1889. Because of his age the young lawyer was not allowed to commence practicing law until a special act was passed by the Florida state legislature. The Eufaula, Alabama native begin practicing in Milton, Florida. His reputation as a brilliant and hard working attorney led to him being sent to the Florida state House pf Representatives in 1900, but before the legislative session convened he resigned his seat to become a State Attorney for the first judicial circuit court of Florida. He served in that position from 1900 to 1909. In 1916 the Democrat was elected to represent Florida's Third Congressional District. He served in Congress from 1917 to 1919 losing his bid to be re-elected to a second term. He returned to Florida and continued his private practice, serving one more time as a State Attorney from 1925 to 1926.  (bio by: Bigwoo)
