Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Bayard, Thomas Francis, 1828-1898 (search)
Bayard, Thomas Francis, 1828-1898 Diplomatist; born in Wilmington, Del., Oct. 29, 1828; grandson of James A. Bayard; was admitted to the bar at Wilmington in 1851, and served as United States District Attorney. From 1869 to 1885 he was United States Senator from Delaware, and foremost among the leaders of the Democratic side. He was a member of the Electoral Commission in 1877, and was for a while president pro tem. of the Senate. In 1880 and 1884 Senator Bayard's prominence in the party brought his name before the National Democratic Convention, but he failed of securing the prize, though receiving many votes. President Cleveland called him in 1885 to the office of Secretary of State, where he remained until 1889, and in President Cleveland's second administration he was first minister and then ambassador (q. v.) to Great Britain. He died in Dedham, Mass., Sept. 28, 1898.
