James W. Wadsworth

Biography:James W. Wadsworth James Wolcott Wadsworth Jr. (August 12, 1877 - June 21, 1952) was a U.S. Republican politician. He served in the New York State Assembly (1905-1910), the U.S. Senate (1915-1927), and as a United States Congressman from New York's 27th district (1933-1951).

Wadsworth defeated Democrat James W. Gerard, the United States Ambassador to Berlin, to win election to the Senate in 1914. He was the Senate Minority Whip in 1915. He was re-elected in 1920. He was defeated by Robert F. Wagner in 1926.

He opposed prohibition and women's suffrage. His strong opposition to prohibition led him to become a leader of the Association Against the Prohibition Amendment. That organization played an important role in the fight for the repeal of prohibition. Wadsworth's wife, Alice Hays Wadsworth, served as president of the National Association Opposed to Woman Suffrage.

His son-in-law is Stuart Symington, the first Secretary of the Air Force and a Democratic U.S. Senator from Missouri.

He is buried in Temple Hill Cemetery, Geneseo, New York.
