Hiram E. Casey was an author of several books - Law, Love and Religion of Napoleon Bonaparte, 1961; Napoleon Bonaparte: Citizen and Soldier, 1963; and, I Was A Five-Dollar Lawyer; Memories of Fifty Years at the Bar, 1963

From the book jacket of Law, Love and Religion of Napoleon Bonaparte:

" Hiram Elbert Casey was born in Prescott, Arizona. A graduate of the public schools in Cloverdale, California, he entered the University of California in 1904 where he took his law degree. He took his Doctor of Jurisprudence degree in 1910. Admitted to the California Bar in San Francisco, he began to practice in 1910.

He is presently practising law in Los Angeles. He is a member of the State Bar of California, the Los Angeles County Bar and the Lawyers Club of Los Angeles. Active in Masonic circles, he is also a Past Exalted Rule of the Los Angeles Lodge 99 of the B.P.O.E.

Many of his articles on bankruptcy have appeared in local and national magazines.

He and his wife, Lillian, make their home in Los Angeles. His daughter, Elberta, formerly of the theatre, resides in Austin, Texas."


From the book jacket of Napoleon Bonaparte: Citizen and Soldier:

"Hiram Elbert Casey is what the newspaper reporters call a "front-page lawyer," one of those legal gentlemen who seem to draw unto themselves cases of public interest. Hiram Casey has not gained questionable fame through the medium of the criminal or the divorce courts, in spite of the fact that he was one of the defense attorneys in California's most notorious case, the Tom Mooney trial. His specialty is bankruptcy.

Front page? Well, he was trustee in the Beeseymeyer receivership, the eight-million-dollar crash which rocked Hollywood to its foundation. He appeared in the famous Alexandria Hotel litigation, the Claus Spreckels bankruptcy, the John Barrymore and Duncan Sisters' cases, and the Associated Fruit Company case. The list is long, for Hiram Casey has been practicing law in California for half a century.

After taking his doctor's degree in law from the University of California in Berkeley in 1910, Mr. Casey was admitted to the bar and opened law offices in San Francisco, where he practiced for seven years.

In 1917 Mr. Casey formed a law partnership in Santa Rosa, and functioned as city attorney for Sebastopol, in Sonoma County, and in 1922 was a candidate for the State Legislature.

A resident of Los Angeles since 1925, Mr. Casey is now retired, having practiced law for 52 years. He stays busy with work for the YMCA and the Boy Scouts, and is a member and Past Exalted Ruler of B.P.O.E. Lodge No. 99 of Los Angeles and Santa Rosa Lodge No. 53, I.O.O.F., of which is he Past Grand. He is also a member of the American, State, and County Bar Associations, and the F. and A. Masons, Los Angeles Masonic Order.

An avid golfer, Hiram Casey also enjoys fishing. He lives with his wife, Lilian, in Hollywood. His daughter, Aileen Elberta, formerly of the theater, is married to Dr. Frederick J. Hunter, a professor at the University of Texas at Austin, Texas."
