Frederick Robie (August 12, 1822 – February 3, 1912) was an American physician and politician who most notably served as the 39th Governor of Maine.

Early life

Robie was born in Gorham, Maine on August 12, 1822. He studied at the Gorham Academy. He graduated from Bowdoin College in 1841. After completing his graduation, he taught academies for a time in the South. He then took a medical course at Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia and received his medical degree in 1844. He had a successful medical career. He established medical practices in Biddeford, Maine, and then in Waldoboro, Maine. He eventually practiced medicine in his hometown of Gorham.

Civil War

During the American Civil War, Robie accepted an appointment from President Abraham Lincoln as Paymaster of United States Volunteers. He served with the Army of the Potomac from 1861 to 1863. His son, William P. F. Robie was born in Dorchester, Massachusetts in 1863.[1] He then was transferred to Boston as Chief Paymaster of the Department of New England. He later served in Maine administering the final payments of discharged soldiers.

Politics

Robie was first elected to the Maine Legislature in 1859 to the Maine House of Representatives. Re-elected in 1860, he left office to serve in the Union Army. At the end of the war, Robie was elected to the Maine Senate in 1866 and 1867. He was Speaker of the Maine House of Representatives in 1872 and 1876. He served as a member of the Executive Council of Maine in 1880 and from 1881 to 1882. In 1882 he was the Republican nominee for Governor and was elected by a popular vote. He was re-elected in 1884 by nearly 20,000 votes. He left office on January 5, 1887.

Later years

After leaving office, Robie continued his medical practice. He also served on the boards of directors of the First National Bank of Portland and the Portland and Rochester Railroad Company. He died on February 3, 1912.
