George Logan(1753-1821) Born in Philadelphia, Pa., September 9, 1753. Member of Pennsylvania state house of representatives, 1785; U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania, 1801-07. Died April 9, 1821. George Logan's Letters Addressed to the Yeomanry of the United States: Shewing the Necessity of Confining the Public Revenue to a Fixed Proportion of the Net Produce of the Land; and the Bad Policy and Injustice of Every Species of Indirect Taxation and Commercial Regulations, "by a Farmer" (Philadelphia, 1791). As the title suggests, Logan is a dogmatic Physiocrat, and to this extent not entirely representative of the vaguer and more eclectic ideas that were generally current. But his praise of "an independent yeomanry," virtuously aloof from the dissipations, effeminacy, indolence, and vice of cities, is thoroughly typical ( pp. 34-35).

In "The Western Detective," novelist and historian James D. Horan commented: "After World War II, I was very fortunate in finding and interviewing extensively three men who were real Western detectives. Not fictional detectives. They went out and they arrested the famous outlaws that we all know about. One was Frank Demaio. Frank Demaio was the Pinkerton who . . . found and chased Butch Cassidy in the Argentine Republic. The other one was Lowell Spence, who chased Kid Curry, Harvey Logan alias Kid Curry, who I have always maintained was the most dangerous man in the American West. He was the brains behind the Wild Bunch, not Butch Cassidy."Henry Logan (1784-1866) Born near Dillsburg, Pa., April 14, 1784.

James Logan, Secretary to William Penn. In the 18th century, the intellectual and cultural development of Pennsylvania reflected, in large measure, the vigorous personalities of two men: James Logan and Benjamin Franklin. Logan was secretary of the colony, and it was in his fine library that young Franklin found the latest scientific works. In 1745 Logan erected a building for his collection and bequeathed both building and books to the city. James Logan, as President of the Council, acted as governor of Pennsylvania for two years, from 5 Aug 1736 until Gov. George Thomas arrived in Philadelphia on 1 June 1738.
