From the guide to the William C.C. Claiborne letters, 1815, (L. Tom Perry Special Collections)

William C.C. (Charles Cole) Claiborne was born in Sussex County, Va., in 1775. He attended the College of William and Mary and the Richmond Academy before serving as a clerk in the United State House of Representatives. After studying law for several years, Claiborne relocated to Tennessee to set up practice in 1794 and was appointed to that state's Supreme Court two years later. The following year he ran successfully for the United States House of Representatives, serving until 1801 when he was appointed governor of the Territory of Mississippi. In 1803, Claiborne oversaw the purchase of the Louisiana Territory from France and served as territorial governor in New Orleans through 1812. Upon achieving statehood, Claiborne became Louisiana's first elected governor, serving until 1816. That year he was elected to the United States Senate, but served only a short time before his death on April 4, 1817.
