Oklahoma Governor. After serving in the army at the end of World War I, he was elected to the Oklahoma Senate, where he served from 1920 to 1926. While serving as Acting Lieutenant Governor, he was elected Lieutenant Governor and served from 1927 to 1929. When the state legislature impeached and removed Governor Henry Simpson Johnston from office in 1929, Holloway became Governor. He pushed for the expansion of child labor laws, a modern mining code, and the reorganization of the state highway commission. He was in office at the beginning of the Great Depression when the state became a "dust bowl" and people migrated to the far west creating the "Okie" image of Steinbeck's "Grapes of Wrath. (bio by: Thomas Fisher)
