Crozier, Robert, lawyer, chief justice of the Kansas supreme court, and United States senator, was born at Cadiz, Harrison county, Ohio, Oct. 15, 1828. About the time he reached his majority, he graduated at the Cadiz Academy, then studied law, and soon after his admission to the bar he was elected county attorney of his native county. In the fall of 1856 he came to Kansas, and on March 7, 1857, issued the first number of the Leavenworth Times. On Oct. 5, 1857, he was elected to the legislative council, defeating John A. Halderman, and took his seat in that body on Dec. 11. In Oct., 1863, he was nominated by the Republican party for chief justice of the state supreme court, and at the election on Nov. 3 he received 12,731 votes, only 14 being cast against him. During the three years he served on the supreme bench he wrote 45 opinions. He was then president of the First National bank of Leavenworth until Nov. 22, 1873, when he was appointed United States senator by Gov. Osborn to fill the unexpired term of Alexander Caldwell, resigned. In Nov., 1876, he was elected judge of the First judicial district and served in that capacity for four successive terms.
