Early life

Coolidge was born on February 11, 1832, in Boston, Massachusetts, to Amos and Louisa (Hopkins) Coolidge.[3][1]

Education

Coolidge attended Boston Latin School, and Harvard College, from which he graduated Phi Beta Kappa[5] in 1852.[1] He received his A.M. from Harvard in 1855, and his LL.B. in 1856.[6]

Massachusetts legislature

Coolidge started his career as an "eminent lawyer" in Boston. He served as a Master in Chancery and Commissioner of Insolvency. He was elected to the Massachusetts House of Representatives[2] from 1865 to 1867,[1] and to the Massachusetts Senate from 1869 to 1872. He served as President of the Massachusetts Senate during his last three years in the Senate.[1][6]

Family life

Horace Hopkins Coolidge was a direct descendant of John and Mary Coolidge of Watertown, Massachusetts, formerly of Cottenham, England. They sailed to America in 1630 with the famous Arbella fleet led by Governor John Winthrop.

On October 27,[7] 1857 Horace Coolidge married Eunice Maria Weeks.[2][1] They had four children: William Williamson Coolidge, Louisa Maria Coolidge, Alice Coolidge, and Charles Cummings Coolidge.[4][6] W.W. Coolidge was a lawyer, city councillor, and city solicitor in Salem, Massachusetts. He married Helen Whittington Mills. Louisa Maria Coolidge married Alfred Dennis Hurd of Cambridge, Massachusetts, and the couple resided in Salem, Massachusetts. Hurd's father, Melancthon Montgomery Hurd, was co-founder of Hurd & Houghton, a publishing company. Today, it is Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Alfred D. Hurd was also involved in the family publishing business. The couple had two children: Marjorie and John Coolidge Hurd. Alice Coolidge died young and unmarried. Charles Cummings Coolidge spent his life at sea and as a sheep rancher in Australia and Montana. He died unmarried.[6]

Death

Coolidge died on February 3, 1912 at his home at 7 Court Square, in Boston, Massachusetts.[4] He is buried at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with his wife and many descendants.[6]
