DAVIS, Cushman Kellogg, senator, born in Henderson, Jefferson County, New York, 16 June 1838. He removed with his parents, when a child, to Waukesha, Wis., attended Carroll College in that town, and was graduated at Michigan University in 1857. He then studied law, and in 1859 began practice at Waukesha. He became a 2d lieutenant in the 28th Wisconsin regiment in 1861, and served as assistant adjutant general during most of the civil war on the staff of General Willis A. Gorman. He was compelled to leave the army in 1864 by an attack of typhoid fever, and in 1865 went to Minnesota and resumed the practice of his profession at St. Paul. He was elected to the Minnesota legislature in 1866, was U. S. district attorney for Minnesota in 1867'71, and in 1873 was elected governor of the state on the Republican ticket, serving one term, and declining a renomination. He was an unsuccessful candidate for U. S. senator in 1875, and again in 1881, but on 18 January 1887, was elected to the office. Michigan University gave him the degree of LL.D. in 1886. He has delivered many lectures, of which the best known is "Modern Feudalism" (1870), and has published "The Law in Shakespeare" (1884).
