Hide Profile

Alfred Bingham was born in 1905, the third son of Hiram Bingham III and Alfreda Mitchell Bingham. He graduated from Yale College in 1927 and Yale Law School in 1930. After obtaining his law degree, he embarked on a two year trip around the world, visiting several countries and meeting and interviewing many international figures for American newspapers. Upon his return, he began the progressive journal Common Sense with Selden Rodman, which the two of them owned and operated until it ceased circulation in 1945. In the 1930s, Bingham was also involved in a variety of progressive organizations and movements, including the League for Independent Political Action. In 1940, Bingham was elected on the Democratic ticket to the Connecticut State Senate in which he served one two year term. From 1944 to 1946, Bingham served in the United States Army in Germany. After World War II ended, he settled in Southeastern Connecticut where he practiced law and became involved in many local, state, and national organizations which worked for social reform in a variety of areas. Bingham is the author of many articles and books on subjects including political theory, economics, democracy in Germany and the Soviet Union, and the Bingham family in Connecticut.
