William Slade was one of Vermont's great public servants and an ardent abolitionist. Born when Vermont was an independent republic, he died just before the Civil War.

A graduate of Middlebury College admitted to the bar in 1810, Slade was a formidable activist opposed to the war with Mexico. He compiled the first Vermont State Papers and Laws of Vermont to 1824. The centerpiece of his career came when he was elected to Congress on the Anti-Masonic ticket in 1831, and was reelected as a Whig. A strong proponent of public education, Slade advanced a program of education reform during his term as Vermont's 17th governor. He was corresponding secretary of the Board of National Popular Education, which he co-founded with Catherine Beecher.
