FOWLER, Joseph Smith, senator, born in Steubenville, Ohio, 31 August 1822. He was graduated at Franklin College, Ohio, in 1843, and for four years filled the chair of mathematics in that institution. He then studied law in Kentucky, but began practice in Tennessee. When the civil war began, he ardently espoused the National cause, and in September 1861, in consequence of a proclamation of Jefferson Davis for the expulsion of loyal people, he removed to Springfield, Ill. In April 1862, he returned to Tennessee, was made comptroller of the state under Governor Andrew Johnson, and took a leading part in reorganizing the state government in the interests of the Union. He was elected to the U. S. Senate in 1865, but was not admitted to his seat until July 1866.
