Description

Samuel Pomeroy Colt, born to Christopher Colt and Theodora DeWolf Colt of Bristol, Rhode Island, and nephew of arms maker Samuel Colt, was an American politician and industrialist. From 1876 to 1879, Colt served in the Rhode Island House of Representatives, where he worked to regulate child labor and advance women's property rights. He was subsequently appointed Attorney General of Rhode Island, serving from 1882 to 1886. In 1886, Colt founded the financial organization, Industrial Trust Company, which became Industrial National Bank, then Fleet Bank, which ultimately merged into Bank of America. In 1888, he formed the United States Rubber Company, later called Uniroyal and the largest rubber company in the nation. Linden Place, his home in Bristol, still exists as a historic house museum.
