Biographical history

Henry Adolphus Newman Kaulback was a lawyer, ship owner and political figure. He was born 28 December 1830 in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, the son of John H. Kaulback, high sheriff, and Sophia Fredericka Newman. Kaulback was educated at Harvard University and was called to the Nova Scotia bar in 1855, practising in Lunenburg. He served on the province's board of agriculture and was a lieutenant-colonel in the local militia. From 1863-1867 he represented Lunenburg County in the Nova Scotia House of Assembly. After an unsuccessful run for the House of Commons in 1867 he sat for Lunenburg in the federal Senate from 1872-1896.

He was twice married, first in 1858 to Eunice Sophie Harris, with whom he had four sons, John Frederick (b.1865), Rupert John Creighton (b. 1868), W.W. Hodson (b. 1870), and William Henry (b. 1872). In 1880 he married Sophie Ann Ryland. Kaulback died in 1896 while in office in Ottawa.
