Edwin C. Burleigh

Biography:Edwin C. Burleigh (November 27, 1843-June 16, 1916) was an American politican from the state of Maine.

Born in Linneus, Maine he attended the common schools and Houlton Academy before becoming a teacher himself. He also worked as a surveyor and farmer before entering government. He served first as a clerk in the state adjutant general's office and then was clerk in the State land office at Bangor, Maine from 1870 to 1876. He moved to Augusta, Maine and became the state land agent from 1876 to 1878 and then assistant clerk in the Maine House of Representatives in 1878. He then served four years (1880-1884) in the office of the State treasurer before becoming Maine State Treasurer himself in 1884 and serving for four years. During this time he also became principal owner of the Kennebec Journal newspaper.

In 1889 he was elected Governor of Maine, a position he held for three years subsequent. He was elected to the United States House of Representatives in 1897 to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Seth L. Milliken and served in that body for 14 years. Unsuccessful in his campaign for reelection in 1910 he returned to business for three years until he was elected to the United States Senate in 1913. He served until his death three years later in Augusta, Maine in 1916.
