David M. Camp
Camp subsequently studied law, attained admission to the bar, and became an attorney in Newport. He served as Orleans County State's Attorney in 1815. He was a member of the Vermont House of Representatives from 1825 to 1826 and 1834 to 1835. Camp also served as Orleans County Assistant Judge from 1830 to 1832 and 1834 to 1835.
Camp became a Whig when that party was founded and served as Lieutenant Governor from 1836 to 1841. He was the first Lieutenant Governor elected after the creation of the Vermont Senate, and so the first Lieutenant Governor to serve as President of the Senate.
In the 1850s Camp relocated to Milwaukee, Wisconsin where his son Hoel H. Camp was a prominent banker and businessman. He returned to Vermont in the 1860s, settling in Derby Line, where he lived in retirement.
