Baldwin, Fred A., was born in the town of Orleans, Jefferson county, and at the age of about fifteen years removed with his parents to Watertown, where he has since resided. He entered the schools of Watertown and graduated from the Watertown High School in the classical course, class of '78. After graduation he engaged for a time in teaching and gained an excellent reputation in the work, filling with great credit the position of principal of schools at Evans Mills, Cape Vincent and Mannsville. He was for some time principal of a large union free school in West Troy N. Y., and later held the position of teacher of Latin and instructor of the Teachers' Training Class in the Watertown High School. He is the possessor of a teacher's State certificate, granted by the state superintendent of public instruction, which licenses him to teach in any of the common schools of the State during life. Mr. Baldwin read law with O'Brien, Emerson & Ward (the senior member of which firm is now one of the judges of the Court of Appeals), and after a due course of study was admitted to the bar. In the fall of 1894 he was elected to the office of justice of the peace of the city of Watertown by a majority of 1,042. He is now actively engaged in the practice of his profession at Watertown. In 1892 he married Kate C. Hall of Mannsville, N. Y.
