Biographical Sketch of H. A. Haskins Jr.

The Honorable Hilary Alger Haskins, Ordinary of Pulaski County, was born April 10, 1890. He is the son of the late Hugh Augustus Haskins and Mrs. Nancy Fleming Haskins. He received his early education in the schools of this county. In 1912 he came to Hawkinsville and entered the mercantile business. Later he studied pharmacy and engaged in the drug business until 1923. During that year his father, who was Ordinary, died, and he was elected for the unexpired term and has continually been reelected since. This shows the confidence and high esteem in which he is held by his fellow citizens. Judge Haskins is one of the busiest government officials of the State. He also holds the posts of county treasurer and judge of the juvenile court. In 1924 he held the office of county commissioner for an unexpired term until an election was called. Besides the duties of his office he has large farming interests.

Judge Haskins is very prominent in social and fraternal affairs. He is a Mason of high standing, being a member of Mount Hope Lodge, F. & A. M., and Pulaski Chapter, No. 20, R. A. M.; a charter member of Rhodes Commandery, Knights Templar; and a Shriner of Al Sihah Temple. He also is a W. 0. W. and B. P. O. E., and is a former president of the Hawkinsville Country Club.

In January, 1916, Judge Haskins married Miss Emmie McGriff, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. P. McGriff and granddaughter of the late Judge P. T. McGriff and the late Mr. D. G. McCormick.
