Biographical/Historical Note

Leonardo Andrea served for a period in the early 1930's as superintendent of schools for Edgefield, South Carolina. Andrea apparently considered himself a socialist, was a South Carolina elector for the Socialist Party in 1932.

James Thomas Heflin "(9 Apr. 1869-22 Apr. 1951), U.S. congressman and senator, was born in Randolph County, Alabama, the son of Wilson Lumpkin Heflin, a physician, and Lavicie Catherine Phillips... After his admission to the bar in 1893, Heflin practiced in Lafayette, serving as the town's mayor (1893-1895), the county's register in chancery (1894-1896), and the county's state representative (1896-1899). In 1895 he married Minnie Kate Schuessler of Lafayette... In 1901 Heflin was elected to the state constitutional convention... The following year, Heflin became Alabama's secretary of state, and in 1904 he was elected to fill the seat of Congressman Charles W. Thompson, who had died... In 1920, following the death of John H. Bankhead, Sr., Heflin was elected to the Senate, and in 1924 he was elected without opposition to a full term... Heflin's defeat in 1930 effectively ended his political career. His attempts to regain a seat in the House of Representatives in 1934 and 1938 and in the Senate in a 1938 special election were all unsuccessful. During the 1930s he lived in part on New Deal patronage, serving as a special representative of the Federal Housing Administration from 1935 to 1936 and again from 1939 to 1942 and as special assistant U.S. attorney from 1936 to 1937...
