POTTER, Chandler Eastman, author, born in Concord, New Hampshire, 7 March, 1807; died in Flint, Michigan, 4 August, 1868. He was graduated at Dartmouth in 1831, and was principal of Portsmouth high-school in 1832-'8, except during 1834-'5, when he was a member of the legislature. Mr. Potter then studied law in Concord, and began to practise in East Concord, but in 1844 removed to Manchester, and for four years edited and published the Manchester " Democrat." He edited the "Farmer's Monthly Visitor" in 1852-'4, "The Granite Farmer and Monthly Visitor" in 1854-'5, and was co-editor of the " Weekly Mirror" and the "Mirror and Farmer" in 1864-'5. He was colonel of tile Amoskeag veterans of Manchester until his decease, and had command of the regiment at the time of its visit to Baltimore and Washington during the administration of Franklin Pierce. He was active in the New Hampshire historical society, and its president in 1855-'7. Colonel Potter was well known as an agricultural, historical, and general newspaper writer, and also devoted much of his time to the study of Indian languages, in which he was more competent than any other scholar in New Hampshire. He edited and compiled all that part of the adjutant-general's report of New Hampshire that included the military history of the state from the beginning of the Revolution down to the civil war (1866-'8). Ills other publications include a "History of Manchester, New Hampshire" (Manchester, 1856), and articles on the Penobscot and other eastern Indians in Henry R. Schooleraft's "History of the Indians," and he partially prepared for the press a new edition of Belknap's "History of New Hampshire, with Notes and a Continuation to 1860."
