John Lysander Cutler went into business at age 16 with his father in Exeter under the firm name of John Cutler & Son.

Fifteen years later, in 1859, he moved to Bangor and went into the lumber business with D.R. Stockwell and G.S. Chalmers under the firm name of D.R. Stockwell & Co.

In 1870 he formed a partnership with B.B. Thatcher and Darius Eddy under the name of Cutler, Thatcher & Co., which later became Stetson, Cutler & Co., of St. John, Bangor and Boston, one of the largest manufacturers of long and short lumber, shingles and lime in New England.

A Republican, Cutler was a member of the Maine House from 1878 to 1880 and president of the Maine Senate during his first term from 1883 to 1884. He was reelected to the Senate in 1885.
