Title: Moses M. Strong
Description: Quarter-length oval portrait of Moses M. Strong. He was born in Vermon on May 20, 1810, and came to Mineral Point, Wisconsin, in June of 1836. Strong was active in territorial and state politics, serving at various times as the U.S. attorney for the territory of Wisconsin, as a member of the first state constitutional convention, and as a territorial and state legislator. When the State Bar Association of Wisconsin was organized in 1878, Strong was elected its first president. He continued to serve as president until 1893, shortly before his death in 1894.
