    A. L. HAGERTY, D.D.S.

    A. L. Hagerty, D. D. S., a leading member of the Miami county dental profession, who is practicing at Tippecanoe City, was born in Fayette county, Pennsylvania, in 1868, a son of David D. and Rebecca (Browneller) Hagerty. David Hagerty was. a man of splendid mental attainments, who followed farming and was a well-known and capable educator, first in Pennsylvania and later in Hancock county, Ohio. In 1874 he took up his residence at Findlay, Ohio, and subsequently was sent by his fellow-citizens as their representative in the Ohio legislature, in which distinguished body he served constructively and to the entire satisfaction of his constituents. A. L. Hagerty received his early education in the public schools of Hancock county, following which he pursued a normal course and then studied civil engineering at Ada College, This profession did not appeal to him, however, and he eventually took a course at the Ohio Medical University, Columbus, now the Ohio State University, from which he was duly graduated with his degree, and at once entered practice at Tippecanoe City. During his earlier years he had an experience in teaching, but with the. growth of his professional duties he gave up educational work, and today is justly numbered among the leading representatives of his calling in the county. He is a valued member of the various societies of his calling, and has many friends among his fellow- members in all the Masonic bodies including both the York and Scottish Rites and is a member of the Shrine, the Triangle and other clubs. He likewise has a number of important business connections, and is a director in the Monroe Building and Loan Association of Tippecanoe City. During the World war he supported the Government in all local war movements, and was one of the very first to subscribe for a substantial amount of Liberty Bonds of the first issue. Doctor Hagerty was united in marriage with Clifford, daughter of Samuel C. and Elizabeth (Updegraff) Hawver of Bethel township, Miami county, well and favorably known farming people of this community. Doctor and Mrs. Hagerty move in the best social circles of Tippecanoe City, where they are surrounded by numerous friends.
