Leverett Saltonstall

M, #15056, b. 1 September 1892, d. 17 June 1979
     Leverett Saltonstall was born on 1 September 1892 in Newton, Massachusetts.1 He was the son of Richard Middlecott Saltonstall and Eleanor Brooks. Leverett Saltonstall married Alice Wesselhoeft in 1916. Leverett Saltonstall died on 17 June 1979 at the age of 86 of congestive heart failure and is buried in Harmony Grove Cemetery in Salem, Massachusetts.


Leverett Saltonstall was an American Republican politician who served as Governor of Massachusetts (1939–1945) and as a United States Senator (1945–1967).

Saltonstall was born in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts and was a longtime summer resident of Vinalhaven, Maine. As an adult he spent winters on his family estate in Dover, Massachusetts, where he liked to farm. Part of the Boston Brahmin Saltonstall family, he was able to trace his ancestral roots to the Mayflower, the Pilgrims and the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Saltonstall was the tenth generation in direct descent to graduate from Harvard and the great-grandson of a U.S. Congressman of the same name.

A graduate of the private Noble and Greenough School, he graduated from Harvard College in 1914, where he was captain of the Junior Varsity crew that won the prestigious Grand Challenge Cup at the Henley Royal Regatta – the first American crew ever to do so – and Harvard Law School in 1917. Prior to being admitted to the bar, he served as a first lieutenant in the United States Army during and after World War I from 1917 to 1919.

Saltonstall, a Republican, entered politics as an alderman in Newton, Massachusetts from 1920 to 1922, while simultaneously serving as an assistant district attorney of Middlesex County from 1921 to 1922. He was elected to the Massachusetts House of Representatives that same year; there he rose to the position of Speaker of the House, which he held from 1929 to 1937. In 1936, he was defeated for Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts, but made a political comeback two years later when he was elected Governor of Massachusetts, a position he held for three terms from 1939 to 1945.

During that period, Governor Saltonstall mediated a Teamsters strike, reduced taxes, and retired 90 percent of the state's debt. He served as President of the National Governor's Association from 1943 to 1944.

In 1944, he was elected to the United States Senate in a special election to fill the unexpired term created by the resignation of U.S. Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. He was re-elected three times to the U.S. Senate, serving from 1945 to 1967. Those he defeated included John Corcoran in 1944, John I. Fitzgerald in 1948, and Foster Furcolo in 1954 and 1960. During his tenure in the Senate, he served as the Senate Republican Whip and on five influential Senate committees. He also served as the chair of the Senate Republican Conference, 1957–1966.

The legendary, but anti-Protestant, James Michael Curley once described Saltonstall as having a "Harvard accent with a South Boston face." Though the remark was intended as a political jab, it resonated with truth, as Saltonstall had an uncanny ability to blend his aristocratic lineage with a personable charm which greatly appealed to the average worker and the common man.

Leverett Saltonstall died of congestive heart failure in 1979 aged 86.
