Sen. Jeter C. Pritchard

Jeter Connelly Pritchard (12 July 1857 – 10 April 1921) was a Republican U.S. Senator from the state of North Carolina between 1895 and 1903. He was the only Republican to represent a southern state in the United States Senate during that time.

Pritchard was born in Jonesborough, Tennessee. He was elected to the North Carolina House of Representatives from Madison County in the 1880s and 1890s.

After the North Carolina legislature chose not to re-elect him to the Senate in 1903, Pritchard served as a justice of the supreme court of the District of Columbia from 1903 until 1904, when he became judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit until his death in 1921.

He was the father of George M. Pritchard.

He is buried in the Riverside Cemetery in Asheville, North Carolina, alongside fellow North Carolina Senators Thomas Lanier Clingman and Zebulon Baird Vance.[1]

Pritchard Park in downtown Asheville is named in his memory.
