From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Charles William Frederick Dick (November 3, 1858 – March 13, 1945) was a Republican politician from Ohio. He served in the United States House of Representatives and U.S. Senate.


Born in Akron, Ohio, Dick served on the Republican National Committee from 1896 to 1900. During this time, he also volunteered for the U.S. Army during the Spanish-American War. He was elected to the United States House of Representatives by a special election in 1898 to fill a vacancy created by the death of Stephen A. Northway, serving the 19th district. Dick served until he resigned in 1904, having been elected to the Senate in March 1904 to fill the vacancy created by the death of Marcus A. Hanna. He served until 1911, when he lost a bid for a second term. Dick also unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for the Senate from Ohio in 1922, losing to Simeon D. Fess.
