Morris S. Tremaine
Morris Sawyer Tremaine (February 27, 1871 – October 12, 1941) was an American businessman and politician.
Tremain was born in Fort Dodge, Kansas. He was the son of Dr. William Scott Tremaine, an army surgeon from New York stationed at Fort Dodge, who was among the founders of the Town of Dodge City, Kansas in 1872. The Tremaine's were an old Cornish American family.
He lived in Buffalo, Erie County, New York where he started work at age 17 as a tally boy on the docks, then built up an insurance business, a lumber business and a steel door company before he entered politics as a Democrat. On June 21, 1898, he married Maude Middledith at Plainfield, New Jersey.
He is quoted as having said: "Those who believe that we have reached the limit of business progress and employment opportunity in this country are like the farmer who had two windmills and pulled one down because he was afraid there was not enough wind for both."
