STORER, BELLAMY, an American lawyer and diplomatist, born in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1847. He graduated from Harvard in 1867, and began the practice of law in Cincinnati. He was elected to Congress in 1891, serving until 1895. From 1897 to 1899 he was Minister to Belgium, and from the latter year until 1902 filled the same office in Spain.
