Frederick George Bromberg
Birth: Jun. 19, 1837
New York
New York County (Manhattan)
New York, USA
Death: Sep. 4, 1930
Mobile County
Alabama, USA

US Congressman. Elected as a Liberal Republican to represent Alabama's 1st District in the US House of Representatives, he served from 1873 to 1875. Interestingly, he did not study law until after his one term in Congress. Bromberg was born in New York City and raised in Mobile, Alabama, where he would live most of his long life. He graduated from Harvard University in 1858, took post-graduate chemistry courses there from 1861 to 1863, and was on its staff as a tutor of mathematics from 1863 to 1865. Upon returning to Alabama, he served as Treasurer of Mobile (1867 to 1869), as a member of the State Senate (1868 to 1872), and as Postmaster of Mobile (1869 to 1871). He was chairman of the Alabama delegation to the Liberal Republican Party's only National Convention, held in Cincinnati in 1872, and this was his stepping stone to Washington. Defeated for reelection in 1874 by Jeremiah Haralson, Bromberg contested the outcome but it was upheld by Congress. He then settled in Mobile, where he was admitted to the bar in 1877 and set up a legal practice. He was President of Alabama's State Bar Association in 1906. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
