Lawrence Joseph Hogan (born September 30, 1928) is a Republican former U.S. Congressman who represented the 5th congressional district of Maryland from January 3, 1969 to January 3, 1975. Hogan did not run for re-election in 1974, and was unsuccessful that year in his candidacy for the Republican nomination for governor. He became county executive for Prince George's County, Maryland in 1978 and served until 1982.
Early life and education
Born in Boston, Massachusetts on September 30, 1928, Hogan attended Gonzaga College High School in Washington, D.C. He received his Bachelor's degree from Georgetown University in 1947, J.D. from Georgetown in 1954, and was admitted to the Bar in the same year. He later was enrolled in graduate studies at San Francisco State College, 1956–1957, received a Master's degree from American University in 1965, and continued studies at the University of Maryland, 1966–1967.
Hogan was the only Republican on the House Judiciary Committee to vote for all three articles of impeachment against Richard Nixon when they were adopted in committee. Hogan famously said into the television cameras:
|“||The thing that's so appalling to me is that the President, when this whole idea was suggested to him, didn't, in righteous indignation, rise up and say, 'Get out of here, you're in the office of the President of the United States. How can you talk about blackmail and bribery and keeping witnesses silent? This is the presidency of the United States.' But my President didn't do that. He sat there and he worked and worked to try to cover this thing up so it wouldn't come to light.||”|
—Lawrence Hogan, 
Two of Hogan's six children are also politically involved in the state of Maryland. Patrick Hogan is a Republican Delegate representing Maryland's District 3A. Hogan's eldest son, Lawrence J. Hogan, Jr., also known as Larry, is the 2014 Republican nominee for governor.
