Biography of Henry Lovin
Arizona Biographies





HENRY LOVIN, Senator from Mohave County, is a Southerner by birth, having been born in North Carolina, but a through and through Arizonan, and one of the men who came West with meager assets and made good. Politically, as well as otherwise, he is today one of the State's most solid citizens. He has never been defeated at the polls, and in his various other undertakings he has met with like success. It was Mr. Lovin who grub-staked the man who discovered the Gold Roads mine, and if for no other reason than this, his name in Arizona's history would be made memorable, as the Gold Road has made a marvelous record as a producer of gold, and has done much toward giving Arizona a place in the records of gold producing sections. Its output, already amounting to millions of dollars, has attracted attention from the entire world. Senator Lovin sold his interest to the present owners of the mine, who have extensively developed it, and have been the means of bringing many valuable citizens to that vicinity. Mr. Lovin has twice been elected Sheriff of Mohave, his majority at the second election having greatly exceeded that received at the first. He was also a member of the Constitutional Convention, and his popularity as Mohave's representative citizen could not be disputed after the handsome majority accorded him in his candidacy for member of the First State Senate. as he received twice as many votes as were polled for two opponents. Mr. Lovin knows the people he represents, and their needs, enjoys their confidence and esteem, and he is especially interested in the welfare of the working people, and familiarly known as "Friend of the Miner." He has, in fact, helped many a man at a critical point, and thus enabled him to attain success, has financed some of the greatest projects in the State, and by his aid has made it possible for some of the great mines of Mohave, the gold producing county of the north, to be developed. Senator Lovin is head of a large mercantile establishment, and largely interested in a number of other enterprises, among them a freighting business by which he makes it possible for residents of the section to get their supplies and machinery moved at a reasonable figure. Like his colleague from Cochise, Senator C. M. Roberts, he is a large employer, and like him also, he owes his large majority to the work done in his behalf by former employes and people who have been otherwise associated with him in business. Chivalrous, progressive, generous and enterprising Henry Lovin is today one of the foremost examples of the self made Arizonan who has made Statehood possible. In the special session of the Legislature in 1913 Mr. Loving was Chairman of the Committee on Municipal Corporations, and member of the following Committees: Constitutional Amendments and Referendum, Corporations, Mines and Mining, Printing and Clerks, and Suffrage and elections.
