Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Norman Jay Colman was a politician, newspaper publisher, and the first United States Secretary of Agriculture. Colman was born in Richfield Springs, New York, and later moved to Kentucky to become an educator. He received a law degree from the University of Louisville Law School in 1849. Colman then moved to Missouri, ostensibly to farm. He was elected as an Alderman for St. Louis city's 5th ward as a Whig in 1854 and 1855. In 1855 he founded the Valley Farmer newspaper. As a result of his publication, Colman became a prominent figure in Missouri farming circles, which set the path for a political career in the Missouri House of Representatives.show more
