From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Robert Hampton Steele (born 3 November 1938) is a retired American politician.

Steele was born in Hartford, Connecticut. His father, known as Bob Steele, was host of the state's top rated morning show on WTIC-AM for more than fifty years.

He attended public schools in Wethersfield, Connecticut and obtained a Bachelor of Arts from Amherst College, Massachusetts in 1960. He graduated from Columbia University in 1963. Between 1968 and 1970 Steele was a securities analyst for the Travelers Insurance Company.

Steele was a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives for the 2nd District of Connecticut from 1970 to 1975. He was elected simultaneously to the Ninety-first and to the Ninety-second Congresses by special election to fill the vacancy caused by the death of United States Representative William L. St. Onge.

He was re-elected to the Ninety-third Congress (November 3, 1970 - January 3, 1975) by the widest margin in the history of the 2nd District; but was not a candidate for re-election to the Ninety-fourth Congress in 1974.

In 1974 he was an unsuccessful candidate for Governor of Connecticut and is now a resident of Essex, Connecticut.
