Isaac McCallum Hogg

ISAAC McCALLUM HOGG. From the beginning of the history of this country the most able of its legislators and public men have been connected with the legal profession, and this rule is still in force today. The long and thorough training to which an attorney is subjected before he is admitted to practice his broad and varied experience, and the knowledge he gains of human nature make him particularly fitted for public service, and few, if any, of the members of this learned profession shirk their responsibilities. One of them, worthy of special mention in this connection, Isaac McCallum Hogg is one of the able attorneys practicing at the bar of Youngstown, and a leader in the local republican ranks. Isaac McCallum Hogg was born at Youngstown, Ohio, November 11, 1878, a son of Charles and Marion (McCallum) Hogg, natives of Scotland, who after their marriage left that country for the United States in 1864 and upon their arrival here, located at Youngstown. For some years he worked as a master mechanic with the Brown-Bonnell Works, now the Republic Iron and Steel Company. His death occurred when he was forty-five years old. The mother is also deceased.

After attending the local public schools, Mr. Hogg matriculated in Adelbert college of Western Reserve university of Cleveland, and was graduated form that university in 1903. For the succeeding two years he was engaged in newspaper and insurance work, and then, in 1905, he assumed the duties of deputy county auditor, to which office he was appointed. So efficient did he prove himself, in 1911 he was elected county auditor, and held that office until 1915, when he retired. In November of that same year he was admitted to the bar, and since that date he has been engaged in a general practice t Youngstown. In addition to his legal duties he has also been secretary and treasurer of the Mahoning Valley Mortgage Company. In July, 1912, Mr. Hogg married Grace Edith Moherman, born at North Jackson, Mahoning County, to which locality the Mohermans came from Pennsylvania in 1804. Mr. and Mrs. Hogg have no children. They belong to the United Presbyterian Church. In addition to other activities Mr. Hogg has served as the county chairman of his party central committee, and he is very prominent in all campaigns. Fraternally he belongs to the Blue Lodge, Chapter and Council of the Masonic Order, the Knights of Pythias, of which he is past chaplain, and the Order of Scottish Clans, of which he is past chief. He also belongs to the Kiwanis Club, the Young Men's Christian Association and the Chamber of Commerce, all of Youngstown. It would be difficult to find a man more thoroughly representative of his times and locality, or one who has the welfare of his home community nearer to his heart, and what he is accomplishing will live after him, for it is of permanent value.
