Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Harry Micajah Daugherty was an American politician. He is best known as a Republican Party boss, and member of the Ohio Gang, the name given to the group of advisors surrounding president Warren G. Harding. Daugherty graduated from the University of Michigan Law School at the age of 20, but had to wait one year before taking the bar exam. Over the next 15 years, he practiced law and began his political career as a City Councilman in Washington Court House, Ohio. From there, he became a prosecutor in Fayette County, Ohio, then served in the Ohio House of Representatives from 1890 to 1894. Bids for higher offices, such as U.S. Congress, state attorney general and governor all came up short. As an Ohio Republican party boss in 1920, Daugherty engineered Harding's ascendancy as the Republican Party presidential nominee at that year's Chicago Republican National Convention
