John McLane Brief Biography

John McLane (February 27, 1852 – April 13, 1911) was a furniture maker and politician from Milford, New Hampshire. He was Governor of New Hampshire from 1905 to 1907.

He was born in Lennoxtown, in Scotland, the son of Alexander McLane and his wife Mary, ne Hay, and was brought to America with his family in 1853, when he was one year old. They settled in Manchester, and moved to Milford in 1869. Upon completion of his schooling, he became a cabinetmaker's apprentice, and opened his own shop in 1876. The business's success (it was for a time the largest manufacture of post-office furniture in North America) secured other business opportunities for him: he became a director of the Milford Granite Company, the Souheagan National Bank and the New Hampshire Fire Insurance Company.
