Daniel D. Frisbie (1916)

Daniel Dodge Frisbie (November 30, 1859 Middleburgh, Schoharie County, New York - August 6, 1931 Middleburgh, Schoharie Co., NY) was an American newspaperman and politician.

Life[edit]

Frisbie was educated in his hometown and later attended Hartwick Seminary in Cooperstown, New York. In 1882, he married Eleanor Manning, and they had three children.

In the 1880s, Frisbie purchased two local newspapers and opened two insurance companies. Later, he was president of the local railroad and utility company. In 1904, as the editor of the Schoharie Democratic-Republican, he was elected President of the Democratic New York State Editorial Association.

Frisbie was a member of the New York State Assembly (Schoharie Co.) in 1900, 1901, 1909, 1910, 1911 and 1912; and was Minority Leader in 1901, 1909 and 1910; and Speaker in 1911. During his speakership happened the last election of a U.S. Senator from New York by the State Legislature: after a three-month long deadlock, James Aloysius O`Gorman was elected to succeed Chauncey Depew.

Frisbie was a member of the New York State Commission for the Panama–Pacific International Exposition in 1915.
