About Warren Winslow, Governor


Warren Winslow (January 1, 1810 – August 16, 1862) was the 33rd Governor of the U.S. state of North Carolina from 1854 to 1855. Winslow graduated from the University of North Carolina.

Winslow was serving as Speaker of the North Carolina Senate in 1854 when Governor David S. Reid resigned, having been elected to the Senate by the legislature. According to the 1835 Constitution, if a governor died or left office, the Speaker of the Senate was to assume the post (the lieutenant governor position was not created until the 1868 Constitution). Although first elected to the state senate in 1854, Winslow had a spectacular rise to Democratic Party leadership and became Speaker of the senate that year. After being elected to a vacant U.S. Senate seat and with almost one month left in his gubernatorial term, Governor David S. Reid handed the gubernatorial position to Winslow on December 6, 1854. Winslow served in this position until Thomas Bragg was inaugurated on January 1, 1855. He then served in the United States House of Representatives from March 1855 to March 1861.

Winslow was a native of Fayetteville, North Carolina and also died there.
