About Frank Eldridge Hyde

Frank Eldridge Hyde was a lawyer and a Democratic politician in Connecticut. He was elected to the Connecticut House of Representatives in 1890. From 1893 through 1897, he was the U.S. Consul in Lyon under President Grover Cleveland. He became one of the most prominent American attorneys in Paris and, as a partner of Hyde & Harper, was the lead counsel in "the famous Evans and Jill cases."

Hyde attended Hartford Public High School, Yale College, and Columbia Law School before entering private practice with Waldo, Hubbard & Hyde in Hartford. In 1881, he was made junior partner; when he became senior partner in 1884, the firm was renamed Hyde, Gross & Hyde. The next year, biographer F. C. Williams wrote that Hyde continued to have "steady progress and flattering success" in the legal profession.

The Waldo-Hyde family was deeply involved in Democratic politics at the local, state, and national levels. Frank Eldridge Hyde's maternal grandfather, Loren Pinckney Waldo, was a state judge and U.S. Congressman. Alvan Pinney Hyde, Frank's father, was a delegate to the Democratic National Convention in 1892. Frank's brother William Waldo Hyde was the mayor of Hartford from 1892 through 1894.

Hyde furthered his family's political connections by marrying Carrie A. Strong, the daughter of Hartford Congressman Julius Strong.
