Frederick A. Sawyer

Biography:Frederick A. Sawyer (December 12, 1822 - July 31, 1891) was a United States Senator from South Carolina. Born in Bolton, Massachusetts, he attended the public schools, graduated from Harvard University in 1844, taught school in New England from 1844 to 1859, and took charge of the State normal school at Charleston, South Carolina in 1859. He returned to the North during the Civil War, and returned to Charleston in February 1865 where he was active in advancing Reconstruction measures. He was appointed collector of internal revenue in the second South Carolina district in 1865, and upon the readmission of the State of South Carolina to representation, Sawyer was elected as a Republican to the U.S. Senate, serving from July 16, 1868, to March 3, 1873. While in the Senate, he was chairman of the Committee on Education (Forty-first Congress) and a member of the Committee on Education and Labor (Forty-second Congress).

Sawyer was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in 1873-1874 and was employed in the United States Coast Survey from 1874 to 1880. From 1880 to 1887 he was special agent of the War Department. He conducted a preparatory school in Ithaca, New York and gave private instruction to students in Cornell University. He moved to Tennessee and became president of a company at Cumberland Gap to promote the sale of agricultural lands in that vicinity.

Frederick Sawyer died suddenly at Shawnee, Tennessee in 1891; interment was in "Sawyer Heights," on the property of his land company, near East Cumberland Gap.
