  1.   Henry Clay McCormick, in Wikipedia: The Free Encyclopedia.

    Henry Clay McCormick graduated from Eastman's Business College, in Poughkeepsie, New York. After graduation he kept books for a local firm and subsequently took charge of a school. In October, 1864, he began to study law, continuing at the same time his duties as a teacher, and on August 28, 1806, was admitted to the bar of Lycoming County. He then went to Iowa, but after a few months stay returned to Williamsport and entered into partnership with his father under the firm name of S. T. & H. C. McCormick. From February, 1867, until the death of his father, the firm was so continued, and on January 1, 1882, Mr. McCormick took as a partner his younger brother Seth Thomas, the title of the firm becoming H.C. & S.T. McCormick This connection was continued without interruption until the death of Mr. McCormick.
    As a business man Henry McCormick possessed the same traits and qualifications which made him one of the leading lawyers of the state. In 1873 he helped to organize the Lycoming National Bank, of which he was a director for fourteen years. In April, 1887, he severed his connection with that bank to assist in founding the banking house of Cochran, Bayne & McCormick, an institution of great financial strength and popularity.
    He served for many years as a member and director of the Board of Trade, and was the chief mover in organizing the Edison Electric Illuminating Company. During the first two years of the existance of this organization, he filled the office of president and subsequently served on the board of directors. In February, 1892, he was elected president of the Williamsport and North Branch Railroad Company.
    Mr McCormicks talent for the conduct of public affairs was recognized at a very early period of his career. In 1869, when twenty five years of age he was elected solicitor of the City of Williamsport, and in 1879 was reelected. In October, 1886, Mr McCormick was nominated for congress by the Republican conference. He carried the Democratic county of Lycoming by a majority of 847, the only time in the history of the county up to that time it gave a majority for a Republican candidate for congress. In 1888 Mr McCormick was reelected by a majority of 4,664 votes.
    Governor Hastings, immediately after the election of 1894, tendered Mr. McCormick the appointment of attorney-general, and he served in that office throughout the entire Hasting's administration. Mr. McCormick threw the whole weight of his ability and his wide influence against the then ruling political machine in Pennsylvania. In 1899 he retired from public life to the practice of his profession. He and his wife were members of the First Presbyterian Church of Williamsport.
