HARDIN, Charles Henry, governor of Missouri, born in Trimble county, Kentucky, 15 July, 1820. His father removed to Missouri in the autumn of 1820, and in 1821 settled in Columbia, Boone co. The son was graduated at Miami university, Ohio, in 1841, and began the practice of law in Fulton, Missouri, in 1843. He was attorney of the 3d judicial district in 1848-'52, and has been several times member of each branch of the legislature. In 1855 he was one of a commission to revise and codify the statute laws of the state. He voted against the secession of the state, and in 1862 retired to his farm near Mexico, Missouri, where, after the war, he resumed the practice of law. In 1874 he was elected governor of Missouri. Governor Hardin endowed Hardin female college, near Mexico, Maine, in 1873, with property valued at over $60,000. He has since been president of its board of directors, and has given much of his attention, as a public man, to the cause of education.
