He was elected as a Republican to three terms in the U.S. House of Representatives (1909-1915), representing the 2nd District at a time when Vermont had two Congressional districts. He was one of the four delegates from the U.S. Congress to the Inter-Parliamentary Union of the World at Geneva, Switzerland, in 1912.
