Atlee Pomerene (December 6, 1863 – November 12, 1937) was an American Democratic Party politician from Ohio. He represented Ohio in the United States Senate from 1911 until 1923.


Pomerene was born on December 6, 1863, in Berlin, Holmes County, Ohio, and his spouse was Mary Bockrus Pomerene. He studied at Princeton University and the University of Cincinnati Law School.[citation needed]


He began practicing law in Canton, Ohio in 1886. After serving in a variety of city, county, and state positions as solicitor and prosecutor, Pomerene was elected the 31st Lieutenant Governor of Ohio in 1910. He briefly served in the post in early 1911 before being elected by the State Legislature to the U.S. Senate. Pomerene was re-elected in 1916, but lost a bid for a third term six years later. Pomerene was appointed by President Calvin Coolidge to serve as a special prosecutor to deal with the Teapot Dome scandal. He ran unsuccessfully for the other U.S. Senate seat from Ohio in 1926 and for the Democratic nomination to the U.S. presidency in 1928. In 1932, President Herbert Hoover appointed Pomerene to succeed Charles G. Dawes as head of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation after Dawes' sudden resignation on June 7.


Pomerene died in Cleveland on November 12, 1937 and was buried in Westlawn Cemetery, Canton, Stark County, Ohio US.[1]
