Education and career

Born on October 2, 1871, in Cambridge, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, Dallinger attended the common schools and graduated from Cambridge Latin School in 1889.[1] He received an Artium Baccalaureus degree in 1893 from Harvard University, an Artium Magister degree in 1894 from the same institution and a Bachelor of Laws in 1897 from Harvard Law School and was admitted to the bar the same year. He was a member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives from 1894 to 1895 and a member of the Massachusetts Senate from 1896 to 1899. He was in private practice in Boston, Massachusetts from 1897 to 1932. He was a public administrator for Middlesex County, Massachusetts from 1897 to 1932. He was President of the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce. He was a lecturer for Harvard Law School in 1912.[2]

Congressional service

Dallinger was elected as a Republican to the United States House of Representatives of the 64th United States Congress and to the four succeeding Congresses, serving from March 4, 1915 to March 3, 1925. He was Chairman of the Committee on Elections No. 1 in the 66th and 67th United States Congresses and the Committee on Education in the 68th United States Congress. He was not a candidate for renomination in 1924, but was an unsuccessful candidate for the Republican nomination for United States Senator. He was subsequently elected to the 69th United States Congress to fill the vacancy caused by the death of his successor, United States Representative Harry Irving Thayer. He was reelected to the 70th, 71st and 72nd United States Congresses and served from November 2, 1926, until his resignation effective October 1, 1932, having been appointed to the federal bench.[1]
