Arizona Biographies





HARRY J. SAXON, member of the House from San Cruz County, was born at San Gabriel, California, July 24, 1882. He came to Arizona in 1891, and settled in Nogales, where his first occupation was cattle raising and ranching. His home has since been in Santa Cruz County. On November 1, 1903, Mr. Saxon entered the government service as mounted inspector of customs at Nogales, and served three years, and at the expiration of that time was elected Sheriff of the County, on the Democratic ticket, of which he has been a faithful adherent and strong worker since attaining his majority.

He was also selected by his party to be their almost unanimous choice for representative of the County in the First State Legislature, and although one of the youngest members of the House, he proved one of the most active and efficient. In the special session in the spring of 1913 Mr. Saxon served on a number of committees, among which are Education and Live Stock. He was married April 29, 1909, in Los Angeles, California, to Miss Anna Martin, of that city, and their residence is near Nogales.
