HERBERT, B,B., was born on a farm near Cuba, Fulton county, Illinois, May 3, 1843. He remained there until ten years of age. About that date his parents moved to Henry county, Iowa, some twenty miles back of Burlington, where he worked on a farm summers and attended district school winters. On the 17th of April 1856 the family arrived in Red Wing but immediately settled on a farm in Belle Creek township, where he engineered a breaking team and assisted in turning over 35 acres of Minnesota sod. That fall the family changed again and took up their abode in Hay Creek Valley, Featherstone township, two and a half miles from Red Wing. Here the young man tilled the soil in the summer and in the winter trudged two and a half miles mornings and evenings to Red Wing to attend Hamline University. Some days the mercury would sink out of sight, but the boy's ambition was up and he was determined not to miss a day if it did cost him a few frozen ears, fingers and toes -- which it did. His first attendance at the university was the winter of 1856-7. The next summer and winter he put in the same way, but the following year 1858-9, he devoted his entire time to the farm. The winter of 1859-60 he taught a district school in a room of his father's house. The fall of 1861 he began a regular course at Hamline University, continued his studies systematically until June of 1865 at which time he graduated in the classical course and took the degree of A.B. Immediately after his graduation, he was elected by the board of trustees principal of the Rochester Seminary, taught in that institution during the school term of 1865-6. That spring he canvassed Olmstead county, lecturing and introducing outline maps, school charts and school apparatus. In September of that year he delivered a lecture before the State Teacher's Association, at Faribault, that was spoken of as an able and interesting production. Immediately after, he proceeded to Ann Arbor, Michigan to attend the law school of that University. On the way he fell in with Major Durkee and from that peculiar and accidental meeting an acquaintance was formed that ripened into a warm personal friendship. They became roommates at the university and wrestled over the same volume of Blackstone together. They were determined to master Blackstone or die, and they are both in good health up to date. The winter of 1866-7 he attended law lectures at the university delivered by Judges Cooley and Campbell of the Supreme Court of Michigan, and Professors Walker and Pond, prominent members of the Detroit bar. In the spring of 1867 Mr. Herbert returned home to the farm in Hay Creek Valley, again devoting himself to agricultural pursuits, prosecuting his law studies in the meantime with a tenacity of purpose characteristic of the man. That fall he entred the law office of Wilder & Williston, Red Wing, where, under their direction, he pursued his studies, assisted greatly by Judge Horace Wilder, to whom he was admitted to the bar, opened an office in Red Wing and began the practice of his profession. In June of that year, he delivered a masters' address and received the degree of Master of Arts at "Old Hamline". In the fall of 1870, he was elected a member of the board of education, and was also clerk of the district, which position he filled for several years. December 28, 1871 he was married to Miss Mary E. Sweny, daughter f Dr. W.W. Sweney of Red Wing. She was born in Fulton county, Illinois on July 16, 1847. A singular coincidence connected with these families is the fact that the given names of the parents on both sides is alike, and the three marriages were solemnized on the 28th of December. In the spring of 1873, Mr. Herbert aided in starting Red Wing Mills and was elected the first secretary of that corporation. The fall of 1873 himself and E.J. Hodgson started the Grange Advance, now the Red Wing Advance. In February of 1877, he was elected secretary of the Red Wing Stoneware Company, which enterprise he was largely instrumental in developing. March 6, 1877, Mr. Herbert, J.M. Hodgman and others started the Red Wing Building Association, which has since become an important institution, and of which he is the secretary. He is also secretary of the Mississippi Valley Industrial Association, a stockholder in the Red Wing Advance, one ofthe editors, the business manager; also half owner with Mr. J. A. Leonard, who owns the other half, of the Red Wing Printing Company, established by them and others in July of 1877. In a word, he has takn an important part in every enterprise for building up the financial interests of the city and county since he became identified with their industries. Himself and wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church. In politics he has always been a Republican, but is not a rigid party man. There is one child, William E. born October 17, 1872.
