Governor Allen Trimble delivered an annual message to the General Assembly of Ohio on Dec. 5, 1822. These four pages are taken from the microfilm version of the 1822/1823 Senate Journal. Trimble (1783-1870), a Federalist, served as both the eighth and 10th governor of Ohio. He first assumed the position following the resignation of Ethan Allen Brown, and Trimble’s first term ran from January to December 1822. He was elected again in 1826, and this time served until 1830. Trimble is significant for his espousal of progressive education legislation, such as the establishment of state-supported institutions of higher learning. In addition, the canal system made great strides during his term as governor. Trimble also served in the Ohio House of Representatives and the Ohio State Senate.
