Biography of William E. Hogan
Sagadahoc County, Maine Biographies





William Edgar Hogan is one of a family of eight children, and was born in Bangor, August 1, 1849, and early found that his way in the world must necessarily be from his own exertions, and later in life became the stay of the family many years. He took to books and liked study, and, going through all the grades of the Bath schools, he graduated from the High School in the class of 1867. He then went to Phillips Academy, Andover, to prepare for a college course; remaining there two years he entered Dartmouth College in 1870; was admitted to the Sophomore class, and graduated in 1872. During his course in college Mr. Hogan taught school two winters, and, after graduation, taught in a Grammar School in Bath three years, studying law at the same time with Washington Gilbert.
