Biographical note Kentucky governor and U.S. District Attorney, Edwin Porch Morrow of Somerset, Kentucky, was a member of a Republican family which included another elected governor of Kentucky (William O. Bradley, Morrow's uncle, who served from 1895 to 1899) and an unsuccessful gubernatorial candidate (Morrow's father, Thomas, who lost in 1883 to J. Proctor Knott). Morrow graduated from Centre College and received a law degree from the universities of Cincinnati and Kentucky. He was also a veteran of the Spanish-American War. After serving as city attorney in Somerset, he was appointed U.S. District Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky. After unsuccessful races for the U.S. Senate and the governorship in 1913 and 1915, respectively, Morrow defeated James D. Black in 1919 for the governorship. Upon leaving office, Morrow became a member of the U.S. Railroad Labor Board of Mediation. He lost a race for a Congressional nomination in 1934, and died a year later in Frankfort.
