John Bigelow (American National Bibliography)

Scholarship

Phyllis F. Field, "Bigelow, John," American National Biography Online, February 2000, http://www.anb.org/articles/04/04-00100.html.

The renewal of the slavery issue in the mid-1850s led Bigelow, [William Cullen] Bryant, and the Evening Post to cast their lot with the new Republican party. In 1856 Bigelow wrote a campaign biography for John C. Frémont, the party's first presidential nominee. As a reward for his constant labors for the Post, Bigelow began an eighteen-month European vacation in 1858 that provided him with contacts among liberal intellectuals and politicians who proved valuable to his later diplomatic career.
