Biography | show moreshow less
JOHN QUINCY ADAMS (1767-1848), the 6th President of the US and the son of the second, was elected in the House of Representatives in 1824 after none of the 3 candidates (Andrew Jackson and Henry Clay were the others) secured a majority of Electoral Votes. Although his election was fully legal, it was tainted in the public mind because Jackson had secured more Electors and Adams was elected with the help of supporters of Clay, who became Secretary of State, an arrangement denounced as "the corrupt bargain." Adams' vision of a strong federal government carrying out a vigorous program for economic development was repudiated in 1828, when Jackson defeated Adams' bid for re-election. As Secretary of State in the Monroe administration (1817-1825) he was the principal author of the Monroe Doctrine, which declared the Americas not open to new European colonization. Adams became the only President to return to Congress, representing his Massachusetts district in the House of Representatives (1831-1848) and emerging as an eloquent critic of slavery.
