Henry George Teigan (August 7, 1881 – March 12, 1941) was an American labor leader and editor who served as a member of the United States House of Representatives from Minnesota.[1]

Background

Henry Teigan was born in Forest City, Winnebago County, Iowa. He attended Luther Academy in Albert Lea, Minnesota and Central College in Pella, Iowa, later graduating from Valparaiso University in 1908. From 1900 to 1913 he was a teacher in various communities. (Iowa rural schools: 1900 – 1904, Des Lacs, North Dakota: 1909 – 1910, and Logan, North Dakota: 1912 – 1913).[2] [3]

Career

He became involved in politics in 1913, serving as secretary of the North Dakota State Socialist Party until 1916. Teigan moved to Minneapolis, in 1917, where he served as secretary of the National Nonpartisan League from 1916 to 1923. From 1923 to 1925, he was secretary to Senator Magnus Johnson. At that time, he also began working as an editor and newspaper writer, which he continued until 1933 when he was elected to the Minnesota Senate where he served one term.

In 1937, he was elected as a candidate of the Minnesota Farmer Labor Party to the 75th congress. After one term, he failed to win reelection, and was also defeated in a 1940 bid to regain his seat. After leaving congress, he resumed newspaper and editorial work in Minneapolis, until his death on March 12, 1941. He is interred in Hillside Cemetery. The papers of Henry George Teigan are maintained by the Minnesota Historical Society in St. Paul, MN.
