H. L. Agee I
OWARD L. AGEE, -
president and general
manager of the Agee i is
Screen Company, is a
native Texan, having
been born in Camp
County, March 13, 1873. He is
the son of Jonathan F. Agee, a
native of Hickman, Tennessee. His
mother was a Georgian, Miss Satsie
Ann Lewis, of Macon, before her
marriage. One of the leading manufacturers
of the city, Mr. Agee is an
active member of the Chamber of
Commerce and of the Fort Worth Adll CI
Men's Club. He is a good roads
enthusiast and spends much of his
time not devoted to his large business
interests in driving his Maxwell,
automobiling being his chief hobby.
Mr. Agee married Miss Nora Sisk,
October 20, 1904. They have two !
children, one aged eight and one four
years old. In politics, Mr. Agee is
a Democrat. He has devoted all
his energy, however, to manufacturing
and has never been an aspirant
for public office. In his chosen
line of activity he has attained remarkable
success, his company being
one of the leading industries of Fort
Worth with trade all over the Southwest.
To the slogan, "Swat the
Fly," he has added the twin slogan,
"Screen the Fly." With the vogue
of sleeping porches the screen industry
has taken on enlarged proportions
and few Fort Worth homes now
are being built without thoroughly
screened sleeping porches, while
many old ones are being remodeled
and equipped in this way.
