William Hooper Autograph Sold

William Hooper was an American politician and lawyer who served as a representative of North Carolina in the Philadelphia Congress between 1774 and 1777. He was born in Boston, Massachusetts to an Anglican family that encouraged him to join the clergy. Hooper instead attended Harvard for his A.B. and M.A. degrees. He was raised a loyalist and continued to support England and Tory governor William Tyron when he was settled in North Carolina. His support for England caused him to have his house destroyed by those who opposed loyalists. It’s believed that these events led to Hooper’s transition into a patriot and revolutionary. By the mid 1770s Hooper was working alongside Thomas Jefferson on a committee that drafted the Declaration of Independence. Hooper later signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776 as one of 56 men. Once the colonies gained independence, Hooper followed a federalist ideology that many opposed. William Hooper became a federal judge for one year in 1789 before he passed away at the age of 48.
