Henry M. Rice (1816-1894)

Henry Mower Rice was a prominent pioneer leader from Minnesota, a fur trader and a federal commissioner for Indian affairs. He negotiated treaties with the Ojibway, Sioux and Winnebago tribes in creating reservations and opening up Indian territory to white settlers. He became the territory's delegate to the U.S. congress (1853-1857). Rice was an early developer of St. Paul and became a successful businessman and philanthropist there. When Minnesota became a state in 1858, the state legislature appointed Rice to be their U.S. Senator.
