Augustus L. Hart, 13th Attorney General

Photo of Augustus L. Hart
Born in Indiana on October 15, 1849. Hart emphasized that a proper defense of the rights of the people of the State of California was dependent upon equal protection of the law. He claimed California’s destiny is immortality "if she will ever maintain the rights of the poor as the rights of the rich; will ever look to the interest of the laboring classes, the men whose property, though small in degree to them, are equal to those of the richer classes.

She will maintain their rights and will maintain the rights of the agriculturalists, maintain the rights of the mechanics, the farmers, the lawyers and all-extending equality to all her people the entire extent of her domain...." Died in Livermore, CA in 1901.
