Arizona Biographies





M. C. HANKINS, mayor of the City of Douglas, was born in Caldwell County, Texas, August 5, 1877, and is the son of Lola G. and John M. Hankins. His parents having been in moderate circumstances, he received his education entirely in the public schools and at the age of sixteen, was compelled to begin earning his own living. His first position was with a general mercantile establishment near his home, with whom he remained seven years. In December, 1900, he left for Arizona and landed in Bisbee. Having been unable to secure employment in his accustomed line, he took a position with the Copper Queen Company at the smelter, and has been in their employ almost continuously since that time. He now holds the position of assistant foreman of the reduction works at Douglas. Mr. Hankins has always been an interested worker in political matters for his party but has never held an elective position, having been appointed to his present position of mayor to fill the unexpired term of J. H. Baker, resigned. He is also County Chairman of the Democratic Central Committee, and these constitute the only political honors ever bestowed upon him. Mr. Hankins is also actively interested in fraternal affairs, is a member of the Elks, Odd Fellows, and Woodmen of the World, and has held the position of Council Commander of the latter association. He is married and has one daughter, Lola Emma Hankins.
