Biography

Rufus King (1755-1827) American statesman and diplomatist, was born in Scarborough, Massachusetts (now Maine). He attended Harvard College, graduating in 1777; after a short interval of military service, he devoted himself to the study of law, and was admitted to the bar in 1780.

Entering public life in 1783, as a delegate from Newburyport in the Massachusetts general court, King rose rapidly to a position of prominence in the Federalist party. He was a member of the Federal Convention, and later U. S. senator from New York.

In 1796 Rufus King was called to succeed Thomas Pinckney as minister plenipotentiary to Great Britain, where he remained for eight years. Again, in 1825, just as he was about to retire from public life, King was called once more to the Court of St. James, but illness forced him to return a year later, and his death occurred on Apr. 29, 1827.
