Hide Profile

Charles Grenfill Washburn (1857-1928) was a lawyer, Worcester manufacturer, author, and U.S. Congressman. He was the grandson of Charles Washburn (1798-1875), twin brother of Ichabod Washburn (1798-1868). A graduate of Worcester Polytechnic Institute, 1875, and Harvard College, 1880, he married the daughter of Horatio Nelson Slater (1808-1888). Like his father and grandfather, Charles G. Washburn was active in the Washburn and Moen Company. He also served for eight years as president of his wife's family textile firm, S. Slater and Sons. Washburn had close personal associations with most of the business leaders of Worcester and his Industrial Worcester, 1917, was an important history of the development of the city as an industrial center. He authored many articles and several other books including Theodore Roosevelt: The Logic of his Career, 1916. Washburn and Roosevelt (1858-1919) had been classmates at Harvard College and they remained friends throughout their careers.
