Henry Moore Baker (January 11, 1841 – May 30, 1912) was a lawyer and politician whose highest office was U.S. Representative from New Hampshire for two terms.

Early life

Born in Bow, New Hampshire, near the capital city of Concord, Baker attended state common schools as well as Pembroke, Tilton, and Hopkinton Academies. He graduated from the New Hampshire Conference Seminary in 1859, Dartmouth College in 1863, and the law school of Columbian (now George Washington) University, Washington, D.C., in 1866.


In 1866, Baker was admitted to the bar. From 1864 to 1874, he served as clerk in the War and Treasury Departments.

After leaving government service, Baker stayed in Washington, D.C., to practice law. From 1886 to 1887, he served as Judge Advocate General of the National Guard of New Hampshire with the rank of brigadier general.

In 1891 and 1892, Baker held a seat in the New Hampshire Senate until he was elected to be a Republican member of New Hampshire's delegation to the national House of Representatives. He served in the Fifty-third and Fifty-fourth Congresses (March 3, 1893 – March 3, 1897) but was not renominated in 1896.

After losing his Congressional seat, he once again practiced law in Washington, D.C., although he remained a legal resident of his hometown of Bow, New Hampshire. However, from 1905 to 1909, he was a member of the New Hampshire House of Representatives.


He died in Washington, D.C., on May 30, 1912, and was buried in Alexander Cemetery in his hometown.
