John Adams, his father, was a member of the Wisconsin State Assembly and the Wisconsin State Senate. He served four years and two months as the fifth, tenth and 14th Governor of Colorado from 1887 to 1889, 1897 to 1899, and briefly in 1905. His last tenure as Governor lasted a little over two months.
