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.
