This newspaper photo was submitted by Jess Ryburn of Poteau, who said Hamilton had coached his father.
Hamilton later was Heavener school superintendent and was elected to the Oklahoma Senate in 1950, where he served until his death in 1967. His son, James E. Hamilton, followed in his footsteps, serving in both the state Senate and House of Representatives. Farmer Wann became superintendent of Pocola Public Schools.
