David Hogg (August 21, 1886 – October 23, 1973) was an American lawyer and politician who served four terms as a U.S. Representative from Indiana from 1925 to 1933.


Born near Crothersville, Indiana, Hogg attended the common schools. He was graduated from Indiana University College of Liberal Arts at Bloomington in 1909 and from the law department of Indiana University in 1912. He was admitted to the bar in 1913 and commenced practice in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He served as chairman of the Allen County Republican Committee 1922–1924.


Hogg was elected as a Republican to the 69th United States Congress in 1924, and began his eight years in Congress on March 4, 1925. He was re-elected to the three succeeding Congresses, ending his last term on March 3, 1933. In 1926, the Anti-Saloon League endorsed his candidacy.[1]

He was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1932 to the Seventy-third Congress and for election in 1934 to the Seventy-fourth Congress,[2] and, in 1936, to the Seventy-fifth Congress.

Later career and death

He resumed the practice of law, branching out into mutual life insurance in 1939. From 1940 to 1943, he served as president of Goodwill Industries of Fort Wayne. From 1941 to 1946, he published an interdenominational newspaper; after which he again resumed the practice of law until his death in Fort Wayne on October 23, 1973.

He was interred in Lindenwood Cemetery.

He is unrelated to David Hogg, a gun control activist who survived the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting as a student.
