Morrow was born near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to the descendants of Scots-Irish immigrants. He moved to the Northwest Territory in 1795. He lived at the mouth of the Little Miami River for a short time before moving to what is now Warren County.[1]

After serving in the Territorial House of Representatives and Territorial Senate, and as a Hamilton county delegate to the 1802 Constitutional Convention,[2] he was elected to the first State Senate a year later and served six months before becoming Ohio's first member of the United States House of Representatives. Morrow won four additional full terms. He ran for the U.S. Senate in 1812 and served a single term from 1813 to 1819, and did not seek re-election. Morrow was elected a member of the American Antiquarian Society in 1814.[3] In 1820, he served as one of Ohio's Presidential electors for James Monroe.[4] He won election to the governorship in 1822 and served for two two-year terms. He declined to serve a third term, instead returning to the Ohio House of Representatives and State Senate. Morrow was sent back to Washington again in 1841, and served two more years in the House, but refused to be renominated in 1842, believing himself too old.

Death and legacy

After retiring from politics, Morrow returned to his farm and gristmill in Warren County. Morrow was buried in Union Cemetery in Loveland, Ohio.[5]

Morrow is the namesake of the University of Illinois and Iowa State University, and was president of Oklahoma State University.
