As a young man of 15, he was employed by an East India mercantile company in New York. It was at this time that he began to explore the more inaccessible parts of the eastern seaboard, often by canoe. The sketches, essays and letters he published about his adventures drew attention on both sides of the Atlantic and most notably, from American author Washington Irving who described Mr. Lanman as "the picturesque explorer of our country." In the mid-1840s, Lanman published Essays for Summer Hours and Letters from a Landscape Painter before becoming the editor of several newspapers. For the next several years, he continued to publish magazine articles of his exploration of the Great Lakes, Mississippi Valley, and the St. Lawrence River, some of which were contained in the reprinted Adventures in the Wilds of America, published in London in 1854. In 1849 he became librarian of the War Department in Washington, resigning in 1850 to become private secretary to Daniel Webster. That association produced his Private Life of Daniel Webster published in 1852. In 1859, he first published The Dictionary of the United States Congress which was revised regularly and later published by Congress as The Biographical Directory of the American Congress. He was appointed librarian of the House of Representatives in 1861. From 1871-1882, he was the American secretary of the Japanese delegation and in the following year, edited the book, The Japanese in America. The remainder of his days were spent writing and painting in Georgetown, having written 32 works in all.
