"HORACE HENRY HAGAN
Horace Henry Hagan, one of the prominent young attorneys of Tulsa, was born at St. Marys, Kansas, October 13, 1891. His father, Horace Hagan, was a native of Kentucky, whence he removed to Kansas and afterward became a resident of Oklahoma. He devoted his life to cattle raising and was also prominent in early days in political circles as a supporter of the democratic party. He died in 1903. His wife, who bore the maiden name of Eulalie Droege, was born in St. Louis, Missouri, and became the mother of four children, all of whom are living.
Horace H. Hagan of this review obtained his education in public and parochial schools of Guthrie, Oklahoma, and afterward attended St. Mary's College, from which he was graduated with the Bachelor of Arts degree in the class of 1910. He next entered Georgetown University and won his LL. B. degree in 1913. In December of the same year he was admitted to the bar in Oklahoma, standing in first place on the examination of the class with which he was admitted. He then began practice in Oklahoma City and has made steady progress in his profession, his success as a lwayer being attributable to his thorough preparedness and his eloquence. He was appointed to the office of assistant attorney general under Attorney General Charles West and served in that important position from 1913 to1915 inclusive. He then became a member of the firm of West & Hagan at Oklahoma City. In January, 1917, he accepted a position as attorney for the Texas Company and in that capacity removed to Tulsa. Later he practiced in a partnership relation under the firm style of Conner & Hagan. This was formed in 1919 and is still in existence. Tulsa classes him with her representative lawyers. He has won notable success, for added to his comprehensive knowledge of the law and ability accurately to apply its principles is a most persuasive eloquence that makes him very strong in the trial of a case before the court. He has also had extensive experience and success in the branches of law peculiarly applcable to the great oil and gas industries for which his home city of Tulsa is noted. He belongs to the Oklahoma State and American Bar Associations and enjoys the high respect and confidence of his professional collegues and contemporaries wherever he is known.
During the World war Mr. Hagan saw service with the Twenty-fifth C. A. C. and was on duty at Fort Rosecrans, California. He is now a past state commander of the American Legion and a member of its national executive committee. He also has membership with the Sons of the American Revolution, being eligible thereto by reason of ancestors in the paternal line who fought for the cause of independence. He belongs to the Kiwanis Club and to the Advertisers Club, the City Club, the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks and the Knights of Columbus. The last named indicates his connection with the Catholic church and he is now a communicant in the Holy Family parish. His political allegiance is given to the democratic party, of which he is an ardent supporter, and outside of his law practice he devotes much of his time to civic and political matters. He has filled a number of important offices, though never seeking political preferment. By means of his natural and cultivated gift of oratory he is many times called upon for public addresses and his discussion of any subject shows that he has thoroughly studied it, for preparedness is one of his marked characteristics."
