Charles Francis Adams (1807-1886) was the son of John Quincy Adams and Louisa Catherine Johnson Adams. His youth was spent in St. Petersburg and Paris, until his father was recalled to become secretary of state. After graduating from Harvard in 1825, he spent the next three years unemployed in Washington, D.C. He was elected to the Massachusetts legislature and the U.S. Congress, and was appointed minister to the Court of St. James’s in London. He also found time to publish ten volumes of the writings of his famous grandfather, John Adams.
