FAIRCHILD, Charles Stebbins, secretary of the treasury, born in Cazenovia, New York, 30 April 1842. He was graduated at Harvard in 1863, and, after studying at the law-school of that University, was admitted to the bar in 1865. Subsequently he became a member of the law-firm of Hand, Hale, Swartz & Fairchild, and continued actively engaged in the practice of his profession for several veers. In 1874 he was deputy attorney general of New York, and in 1876 was elected, as a Democrat, to the attorney generalship. He served in that capacity for two years, and then spent some time in travel abroad. In 1880 he settled in New York City, and devoted himself to the practice of law. He continued so engaged until 1885, when he was appointed assistant secretary of the treasury. While holding this office, he was frequently called on to represent Sec. Daniel Manning, and when the latter was compelled to give up the duties of the place, Mr. Fairchild became acting secretary. On 1 April, 1887, the resignation of Mr. Manning" went into effect, and the portfolio was then given to Mr. Fairchild, who thus became a member of President Cleveland's cabinet. APPLE

In 1871 Mr. Fairchild married Helen Lincklaen, a descendant of that Lincklaen who founded Cazenovia in May, 1793, as an associate of Theophilus Cazenove, agent for the Holland Land Company.

After his death, Mrs. Fairchild endowed in 1928 the Charles Stebbins Fairchild Professorship of Comparative Public Law at Harvard Law School.  -30-
