New York, USA
Death: Jun. 2, 1979

US Congressman. He graduated from Georgetown University Law School in 1920 and became an attorney in New York City. A Republican, he served in the New York Assembly from 1927 to 1928, was Sheriff of Nassau County from 1929 to 1931, and served in the Assembly again from 1934 to 1938. In 1938 he was elected to the US House of Representatives, and he served from January 1939 until resigning in December 1952. Hall resigned shortly before the end of his final term because he had been elected Nassau County Surrogate Judge. He served on the bench until 1953, when he resigned in order to become Chairman of the Republican National Committee. After overseeing Republican campaigns for the 1954 and 1956 elections, Hall resumed the practice of law in 1957. In 1958 he was President Eisenhower's representative at the opening of the Brussels World's Fair, Expo '58. He retired to his Glen Cove home in the late 1960s, and died at Glen Cove Community Hospital. (bio by: Bill McKern)
