Biography

SERGEANT MASON B. CARPENTER was a student at Barre Academy and enlisted into Company I when he was only 17 years old and served as private until promoted to sergeant January 15, 1863. He was an apt scholar and naturally of a military turn. After his term of service expired he returned to Barre and fitted for college at Barre Academy and graduated at the University of Vermont and studied law at St. Albans, Vt., and resided there for several years when he removed to Denver, Colo. While at St. Albans he was captain of a company of Vermont Militia, and later was colonel of a regiment of Colorado militia. He is prominent in all matters which tend to better his adopted state and is a very successful practitioner in the courts.
