SABIN, Dwight May, senator, born in Marseilles, La Salle County, Illinois, 25 April, 1844. His early years were spent on a farm, and in 1857 the family removed to Connecticut. He was educated at Phillips Andover academy, which he left in 1863 to enter the National army: but he resigned after three months, owing to impaired health, and procured a clerkship in Washington, D.C. In 1864 he entered on farming and the lumber business in Connecticut, and in 1868 he removed to Stillwater, Minnesota, where he engaged in lumbering and manufacturing. Mr. Sabin now (1888) owns a large number of mills, and is the largest stockholder in the Northwestern car company, having acquired a fortune. He served in the state senate in 1870-'1, was a member of the National Republican conventions of 1872, 1876, 1880, and 1884, serving as chairman of the last, and was elected to the United States senate as a Republican, to succeed William Windom, for the term that will end on 4 March, 1889.
