Biography

Dietrich was born in Aurora, Illinois November 26, 1853. He was employed as a clerk in a hardware store in St. Joseph, Missouri. He moved to Chicago, Illinois and engaged in the hardware business. He moved to Deadwood, Dakota Territory (now South Dakota), in 1875 and engaged in mercantile pursuits, delivering goods on pack animals through the Black Hills. He then located and owned the ‘Aurora’ mine. He settled in Hastings, Nebraska, in 1878 and engaged in mercantile pursuits and in banking. Dietrich founded the German National Bank at Hastings and became the president of the Hastings Board of Trade.[1]

Dietrich served as Governor of Nebraska from January to May 1901, when he joined the United States Senate to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Monroe L. Hayward. His tenure in the Senate lasted from March 28, 1901, to March 4, 1905, and he served as a pro-imperialist on the Lodge Committee investigating war crimes during the Philippine-American War. He did not run for reelection in 1904.

Dietrich was married twice. His first wife, Elizabeth Slaker, died in 1887. After Elizabeth's death, he married Margretta Stewart Shaw in 1909. Charles H. Dietrich retired in 1905 and died in Hastings, Nebraska on April 10, 1924. He is buried in Parkview Cemetery.
