More information

The son of Perkins Bass and Clara (Foster) Bass, Robert P. Bass was born in Chicago, Illinois, although his family moved to Peterborough when he was nine. He grew up on a family farm that is still owned by descendants. He graduated from Harvard College in 1896. Bass was elected to the state House of Representatives in 1905 and 1909, and the state Senate in 1910. He was governor from 1911 to 1913.



His status was hurt however after the 1912 presidential election, when he supported Theodore Roosevelt's Progressive Party (Bull Moose Party) against the Republican nominee, President William Howard Taft. The move threw the state Republicans into disarray and led to a Democratic governor and a Democratic legislature. In retaliation, the party rejected Bass when he sought a U.S. Senate seat in 1913 and 1926.
