Description:

Caleb Strong (1745-1819), born in Northampton, Massachusetts, was a lawyer with a long career in government service. He participated in the drafting of both the Massachusetts Constitution and the United States Constitution. He was one of the first United States Senators from Massachusetts (1789-1796), and served as Governor of Massachusetts from 1800 to 1807, and then again from 1812-1816. Faneuil Hall’s portrait of Strong, by J.B. Marston, is thought to be a copy of an earlier painting.
