Biography

James was born and raised in western Kentucky. As a teenager he served as a page in the Kentucky General Assembly. James studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1891, beginning his practice that year.

In 1902 James sought and won election to the United States House of Representatives from Kentucky's 1st district, the far western part of the state. He was re-elected to the House four times, serving there from March 4, 1903 to March 3, 1913. He was the Chairman of the Democratic National Conventions of 1912 and 1916.[1]

In 1912 James decided to give up his House seat to seek election to the United States Senate. He won that election and was sworn in on March 4, 1913. He served as chairman of the Senate Committee on Patents. He died during his term of office in a hospital in Baltimore, Maryland on August 28, 1918.[2]

He was buried in Mapleview Cemetery in Marion, Kentucky.
