Term: Taylor, Horace Adolphus 1837 - 1910

Definition: newspaperman, politician, diplomat, businessman, b. Norfolk, N.Y. He moved to Wisconsin in 1855, settling in River Falls, where from 1857 to 1858 he was co-editor, with his brother, Lute A. Taylor, of the River Falls Journal. In 1860 he moved to Hudson, and from 1864 to 1888 edited, with various partners, the Hudson Star and Times. Taylor also served briefly as co-editor, with his brother, of the La Crosse Morning Leader (1869-1871). Through his newspaper enterprises Taylor acquired capital, invested heavily in real estate, lumber, banking, and mining enterprises in the western part of the state, and eventually built a small fortune. A Republican, he was a delegate to the national conventions of 1876 and 1884, was chairman of the Republican state central committee (1883-1887), and from 1876 to 1881 was agent for the St. Croix Land Grant. Taylor served by presidential appointment as U.S. Consul in Marseilles, France (1881-1883), was state senator from St. Croix County (1889-1890), and in 1890 moved to Madison where from 1890 to 1901 he edited the Wisconsin State Journal, one of the leading Republican newspapers in the state. In 1899 he was appointed assistant secretary of the U.S. Treasury in Washington, D.C., serving in this capacity until his retirement in 1906. Returning to Wisconsin in 1906, he made his home in Madison until his death. Wis. Blue Book (1889); Columbian Biog. Dict. ... Wis. (Chicago, 1895); Madison Wis. State Journal, Aug 5, 1910.
