Addison Peale Russell represented Clinton County, Ohio in the Ohio House of Representatives in the 52nd General Assembly (1856–57) as a Republican, and was Ohio Secretary of State (1858–62). In 1868, Russell retired from public office to pursue literature. He wrote seven books which generally fall into the category of belles-lettres, or writing that focuses on the aesthetic qualities of language rather than its practical application.
