Biography | show moreshow less
PICKERING (1745-1829) was Adjutant General of the Continental Army (1777-1778) and Quartermaster General (1780-1785) before serving as Washington's Postmaster General (1791-1795), Secretary of War (1795-1796) and Secretary of State (1795-1797). He remained as Secretary of State in the Cabinet of President John Adams until 1800. A Federalist representing Massachusetts in the U.S. Senate (1803-1811), Pickering was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1811. On January 2, 1811, by a vote of 20-7, Pickering became the first U.S. Senator to be censured by the Senate. He was accused of violating Congressional law by reading confidential documents in open Senate session before an injunction of secrecy was removed. Pickering later served as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives (1813-1817).
