He taught schools after his graduation from Bowdoin College, (class 1849), in Cape Elizabeth, Me., and North Andover, Mass., a single term each; engaged in legal studies, and was admitted to the Bar of Cumberland County, October, 1852. He then began the practice in Bath, but in the following year removed to Portland, where he continued in his profession until 1865, when he became Treasurer of the Portland Rolling Mills. He resigned that position in 1978, having been elected President of Maine Central Railroad, which office he held until his resignation, 1886. He has been for several years on the Standing Committee of the Protestant Episcopal Church, Diocese of Maine, and Deputy to its Convention, as also to the Triennial General Convention, and is Senior Warden of St. Luke's in Portland. In 1853, he married Cornelia Stuyvesant Ten Broeck, daughter of Rev. Petrus S. Ten Broeck, and has had three children, two daughters and a son, also a graduate of Bowdoin.
