Marvel Mills Logan, jurist and U.S. Senator, was born on January 7, 1874, to Gillis Franklin and Georgia Ann (Houchin) Logan in Brownsville, Kentucky. Logan received his early education at public and private schools in Edmonson County and studied law under A. A. Sturgeon. He passed the kentucky bar examination in 1896. He began to practice law at Brownsville and was elected chairman of the town's board of trustees in 1897. Four years later he became the Edmonson County Attorney and in 1910 was elected County Judge. Logan became attorney general of Kentucky in 1915, and in 1917 became chairman of the first Kentucky State Tax Commission. He resigned from the commission in 1918 and returned to private practice, first in Louisville, and in 1922 in Bowling Green, Kentucky. In 1926 he was elected to the Kentucky state court of appeals, where he served until March 1931 and was chief justice for several months.  In 1930, Logan ran for the U.S. Senate on the Democratic ticket, and defeated the Republican nominee, John M. Robinson, by 336,748 to 309,180. He was re-elected in 1936. At the end of his Congressional career, Logan was the ranking member of the Senate Military Affairs Committee, Chairman of the Claims Committee, and a member of the Judiciary Committee. Logan served in the Senate from March 4, 1931, until his death on October 3, 1939.  Logan was married to Della Haydon of Glasgow Junction, Kentucky, on September 25, 1896. They had four children: Victor Hubert, Agnes, Leland Hallowell, and Ralph Hunter. Logan died in Washington D. C. while in office and was buried in the Logan family cemetery near Brownsville. Many of Logan's papers have unfortunately been lost. The Marvel Mills Logan Collection contains mainly personal papers, photographs, and clippings from the 1930s.
