Louie E. Lewis, Democratic State Representative from the Fiftieth District (1933-1938), Speaker of the Illinois House of Representatives (1937-1938), State Treasurer (1939-1940), and candidate for Lieutenant Governor (1940), was born on July 20, 1893, on aMt.Pleasant(FranklinCounty),Illinoisfarm that the Lewis family had owned since the 1820’s. His mother, Louisiana Isabelle Galloway, was a member of a large Franklin County family.

 

One of the Lewis’ eleven children, Louie attended the Mt.Pleasant public school. He attended Southern Illinois Normal School for a brief time and obtained his teaching certificate when he was eighteen. After his first teaching position at Mulkeytown,Illinois, Lewis spent the next ten years in various rural and city schools in Franklin County.

 

Low teacher salaries prompted Lewis to leave the teaching profession, and he worked briefly as a bookkeeper for a large coal mining company. He also owned and operated his own farm near Christopher, Illinois, for nearly four years.

 

In 1923, Lewis entered the newspaper field. After buying a printing plant at Sesser, Illinois, he began publishing the Sesser Herald. In 1926, with his brothers Thurlow G., O.H., and Harry, he organized Lewis Brothers Publishing Company. He also purchased the Christopher Progress in 1926 and began publishing that weekly.

 

Lewis was also a member of the Franklin County Board of Supervisors at the age of twenty-nine and served five terms as president of the Goode-Barren Township High School Board of Education in Christopher. In 1932, he resigned from the school board in order to become a Democratic Party candidate for the Fiftieth District seat in the Illinois General Assembly.

 

Following his election to the General Assembly in 1932, Lewis became a member of the following House committees: Agriculture, Education, Industrial Affairs, and Motor Vehicles and Traffic Regulation. He also belonged to the Senatorial Apportionment Committee and the Committee to Visit Educational Institutions. Lewis was reelected as a State Representative from the Fiftieth District in 1934 and 1936.

 

While in the Illinois House of Representatives, Lewis was a strong supporter and close political ally of Governor Henry Horner. In 1937, with Horner’s support, Lewis was elected Speaker of the House for the 60th General Assembly. As Speaker, he also served as a member of the Illinois Constitution Sesquicentennial Commission.

 

In 1938, Lewis was elected State Treasurer. The Treasurer was responsible for receiving taxes and revenues, making payments of authorized disbursements, and investing state funds. State funds were deposited in banks that had placed ass collateral with the Treasurer’s office securities that were equal in market value to the amount of the state funds deposited in that bank. The state treasurer also collected the state inheritance tax from county treasurers and served as trustee for both state employees and teachers’ retirement funds. Lewis was also vice-chairman of the Illinois Emergency Relief Commission during his term as State Treasurer.

Because the 1870 state constitution prohibited the Treasurer from succeeding himself, Lewis did not seek reelection at the end of his two-year term. Although he was the ailing Governor Horner’s choice for the 1940 gubernatorial nomination, division within the Democratic Party resulting in the adoption of a “harmony” ticket headed by Harry Hershey for Governor and Lewis for Lieutenant Governor. After defeating acting Governor John Stelle in a heavily contested primary election, Hershey and Lewis lost the general election to Republicans Dwight Green and Hugh Cross.

 

Following his 1940 candidacy for Lieutenant Governor, Lewis did not seek major elective office again. When Adlai Stevenson II became Governor in 1949, Lewis was appointed Chief Clerk of the Division of Motor Carriers in the Department of Public Works and Buildings. After the 1952 election of Republican William Stratton as Governor, Lewis resigned his post and retired to Christopher.

 

Lewis and his wife, the former Flora Agnes Overturf, resided at their home in Christopher until Lewis’ death on September 7, 1968. He was survived by his wife and their six children: Geneva Agnes Bacon, Olen Eugene Lewis, Bertha Mae Trout, Max Martin Lewis, Betty Lou McNeill, and Louie E. Lewis, Jr. As an active member of the Christopher Masonic Lodge and Shrine, Lewis had served as Grand Lecturer for the Masonic Grand Lodge and was buried at the Masonic and Odd Fellows Cemetery in Benton,Illinois.
