W. O. LOGAN.
W. O. Logan is well known as a representative business man of Douglas, where he is handling real estate and oil stocks and properties. A native of Iowa, he was born near Iowa City, on the 14th of April, 1870, a son of Lewis and Frances (Brennaman) Logan. The mother has been called to her final rest but the father is living and has devoted his life to farming and stock raising.
W. O. Logan spent his youthful days under the parental roof upon the home farm and began his education in the district schools, while later he became a high school pupil. After his textbooks were put aside he turned his attention to the live stock business and in 1886, wishing to enjoy the advantages for the conduct of such a business in the west, he came to Wyoming, making his way to Converse county. He was employed in connection with different cattle outfits for a time and later engaged in business on his own account. He developed his interests until he had one of the largest sheep ranches in the state with thousands of head of sheep upon the range. He continued to engage extensively in sheep raising until 1913. For a time he was associated with Mr. Cosgriff, of Cheyenne, but Mr. Logan returned to Douglas and opened an office for the conduct of a real estate business and for the sale of oil properties and stock. He has built up a good patronage in this connection and is now controlling a large, growing and profitable business.
On the 25th of December, 1905, Mr. Logan was united in marriage to Mrs. Nettie Hazen and to them have been born two children, Dorothy and William. Mr. Logan gives his political allegiance to the republican party, whose ticket he has voted since reaching adult age. Fraternally he is connected with the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks and the Woodmen, He is also a member of the Commercial Club and the family are communicants of the Episcopal church. Mr. Logan stands for all that has to do with progress and improvement in this state, in which he has now made his home for more than three decades. He has been an interested witness of all the changes that have occurred and the progress that has been wrought, and Wyoming finds in him a stalwart champion who believes in its future and displays his faith by investment in its property and business interests.
