Albert C. Hunt
, son of
Judge William T. and Mattie (Rose) Hunt
, is a comparatively recent
addition to the legal fraternity of Oklahoma but has already gained a
well-established position for himself in legal circles. He was born
at Clarksville, Arkansas, July 30, 1888, and was granted good
educational advantages, in 1906 graduating from the Missouri Military
Academy with honors. He next became a law student at Vanderbilt
University, and was graduated therefrom in June, 1909, with his
degree, and since that time has been engaged in active practice at
Wagoner, in association with his father. He was the first incumbent
of the office of city attorney of Wagoner, under the commission form
of government, and established an excellent record in that capacity,
a service which marked him indelibly as a young man of great promise.
Mr. Hunt is a thirty-second degree Mason, a Knight Templar and a
member of the Mystic Shrine, and is very popular in fraternal, social
and professional circles. He was reared in the faith of the Methodist
Episcopal Church, South, and has remained true to its teachings.
On November 24,
1914, Mr. Hunt was married to Miss Essie Hayden, who was born in the
Cherokee Nation, daughter of C. Hayden, a prominent banker and
stockman of Oklahoma.
