Broome County, NY Biographies





ORVILLE E. HADDEN - In the public and business life of Johnson City, New York, there is no one better known than Orville E. Hadden, chief of police of that town, and for the past eight years Chief Hadden has discharged his duties in a most competent manner.

Mr. Haddon was born June 7, 1878, in Candor, New York, son of Steven and Ellen Hadden. His parents tilled the soil and were among the upright citizens of Candor. There Mr. Hadden attended the public schools, and during his vacations assisted his farther in the farm work. During his youth and early manhood, he worked at various occupations, and was always keenly interested in civic welfare matters. This trait undoubtedly led to his connection with the police department of Johnson City. He served on the police force at Owego, Tioga county, New York, for three years, and then came to Johnson City, and, after eighteen months, became chief of police here on May 1, 1914. In all arrests Mr. Hadden has made, he has always made friends of the prisoners. Children also are his friends, among whom he is very popular. Mr. Hadden's qualifications make him particularly eligible for this position, and he is generally recognized as a man of integrity and a useful citizen worthy of the esteem in which he is held. He is a member of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, and in early life was a member of the Methodist church.

In 1901 Chief Hadden married, in Tioga county, New York, Nellie Drake, daughter of Jedidiah and Emma Drake, and they are the parents of a son, Howard J.
