State Government, 1886
Excerpt from State Government, 1886: Biography of Members, Councillor, House and Senate Committees, State House Directory, Department Commission and Clerical Register; Compiled From Sergeant-at-Arms OfficeEnters for a third term upon the highest office in the Commonwealth. A resident of Chicopee, he was born in Lexington, Mass., Feb. 20, 1834, and prepared for college in the Hopkins Classical School, Cambridge. He was graduated at Harvard University in 1856, and accepting the position of Principal of the High School in Chicopee, remained in that institution nine years, retiring in 1865. He was admitted to the Bar in Cambridge in 1866, and entered at once upon the practice of his profession. In 1874 he represented Chicopee in the House of Representatives, and two years later he was a member of the State Senate. In both branches of the Legislature he displayed marked ability, and his qualities as a legislator were recognized in 1876 by his election to represent the then Eleventh District in Congress. Prompt and regular in his attendance to the duties of his position, he distinguished himself by his ability to grasp quickly the merits of questions at issue, by his broad and honest aims, and by the excellent judgment he displayed in speech and action. A well-informed parliamentarian, he was regarded as an authority in that direction, was one of the best presiding officers in Congress, and in the Forty-fifth, Forty-sixth, and Forty-seventh Congresses, of which he was a member, he exerted a strong and useful influence. After the redistricting of the State in 1882, he was elected from the new Twelfth District, but before the organization of the Forty-eighth Congress he was elected Governor. He took his seat in Congress, nevertheless, to assist in the organization of the House, resigning in order to enter upon the duties of the Chief Magistracy of the Commonwealth. Gov. Robinson's triple term of service has been marked by a dignified and able discharge of all the requirements of his high official position. With the customary limitation, he will probably retire from the Chief Magistracy with the unqualified reputation of a faithful, judicious, "model" Governor, well-nigh realizing the "ideal" of the good citizen in his scrupulous fidelity and high sense of honor in the weighty responsibilities of his official career.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
