Ira D. Oglesby Jr. Papers, 1916-1921
0.25 Linear feetHalf document box
Scope and Contents Note
This collection contains the papers of Ira D. Oglesby, Jr., a Fort Smith attorney. The collection includes working papers related to Oglesby's service on Arkansas's Western District Draft Exemption Board. It also contains Oglesby's correspondence regarding Emmett E. Morris, a Mountainburg bank cashier convicted of forgery; general correspondence arising from Oglesby's professional and political activities (especially his involvement with Charles Brough's gubernatorial campaign of 1916); and a file of political papers.
Ira D. Oglesby, Jr. was the son of Ira Dancy Oglesby and Louise Isabell Miller, who moved to Fort Smith from Mississippi in 1893. After his admission to the Arkansas bar, Oglesby joined the Fort Smith law partnership that his father had formed with William Ben Cravens. After the elder Oglesby's death, however, the partnership was short-lived, being dissolved at the end of 1921. As an active member of the Democratic Party, Oglesby worked with Charles Brough's 1916 gubernatorial campaign. Throughout World War I, Oglesby served on Arkansas's Western District Draft Exemption Board.
