Sinnott, was the founder of the old Umatilla House[vague] in The Dalles, his mother was Mary Brass Sinnott.[2] He attended the public schools and the Wasco Independent Academy at The Dalles.[1] He received an Artium Baccalaureus degree in 1892 from the University of Notre Dame and read law with Alfred S. Bennett in 1895.[3] He was admitted to the bar and entered private practice in The Dalles from 1885 to 1912.[3] He served as a Republican member of the Oregon State Senate from Wasco County from 1909 to 1913, being elected in 1909 and 1911.[4][5]

Congressional service

Sinnott was elected as a Republican to the United States House of Representatives of the 63rd United States Congress and to the seven succeeding Congresses and served from March 4, 1913, until his resignation effective May 31, 1928.[1] He was Chairman of the United States House Committee on Public Lands for the 66th through 70th United States Congresses and of the United States House Committee on Patents for the 70th United States Congress.[1] While in the House he worked to create and enlarge water reclamation projects in Eastern Oregon.[2]
