Author Code: AJHY

Born: Oct. 8, 1838 - Salem, Indiana, USA

Died: Jul. 1, 1905 - Newbury, New Hampshire, USA

Educated at Pittsfield Academy , Springfield College and Brown University, Hay graduated in 1858. His interest in poetry earned him the Class Poet title. He joined his uncle's law practice in Warsaw, Illinois where he studied for the bar. At this time he met Abraham Lincoln, whose law office was next door. Hay was admitted to the bar in 1861 and Lincoln, who had become president, appointed him as an assistant private secretary. He served in the Army for a short time during the Civil War, rising to the rank of brevet colonel. After the war he served in the diplomatic corps in Paris, Madrid and Vienna. In 1870, he joined the New York Tribune as editor and in 1871 he published Pike County Ballads and Other Poems, which was very popular. In 1878, he was appointed assistant secretary of state by President Hayes. In 1897, he was appointed US Ambassador to the UK and the following year became the US Secretary of State under President McKinley, a role he continue until his death. During the years as Secretary he was responsible for numerous treaties including the Treaty of Paris, which ended the Spanish-American War, and the Open Door Policy in China. His other works include Castilian Days (1875), The Bread-Winners (1883), Poems (1890) and the ten-volume Abraham Lincoln: A History (1890) produced in collaboration with John Nicolay.
