US Congressman. He graduated from Wesleyan University in 1906 and New York Law School in 1908, and practiced law in Syracuse. He was a longtime member of the Weslyan University Board of Trustees, and was also a member of the board of directors of the Syracuse Journal newspaper. Hancock served in the National Guard and was a veteran of both the 1916 Villa Expedition on the Mexican border and World War I in France. He was Syracuse's Corporation Counsel from 1926 to 1927. In 1927 Hancock won a US House seat in a special election held to fill the vacancy caused by Walter W. Magee's death. He was reelected nine times and served from November, 1927 to January, 1947. He did not run for reelection in 1946 and resumed practicing law in Syracuse. Syracuse's airport was named for him, and the Hancock Field National Guard base at the Syracuse airport also bears his name. (bio by: Bill McKern)
