Taber Davis Bailey (April 5, 1874-?) was an American lawyer and politician from Maine. Bailey, a Republican from Bangor, Maine, represented Penobscot County in the Maine Senate for three non-consecutive terms between 1912 and 1924.
Baily was born on April 5, 1874 in Old Town, Maine. His father, Charles Bailey was a prominent attorney in Penobscot County and was elected to the Maine House of Representatives in 1870. Taber Baily grew up in Bangor and graduated from Bangor High School in 1892. He then attended Bowdoin College, from which he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1896. After graduating from Bowdoin, Bailey began studying law in the Bangor law firm of Daniel F. Davis and his father, Charles A. Bailey. Two years later he was admitted to practice law in Maine courts.
Baily was first elected to the Bangor City Council at the age of 23 in 1897. He served on the City Council until 1900. A year later, he was elected President of the Bangor Common Council. In 1902 and 1903, Baily served as Bangor City Solicitor. In 1912, Bailey was elected to his first term in the Maine Senate. He left the Senate again until his election in 1916, after which he was chosen as President of the Maine Senate by his colleagues. He again left the Senate until 1922, when he was re-elected to his third and ultimately final term.
