Lieut. Hagood Is Killed In Action
EASLEY, Apr. 12. – Lt. Albert S. Hagood, 35, formerly reported as missing in
action in Germany since March 23, was killed in action, according to word
received by his wife, from the War department.
Lieutenant Hagood graduated from The Citadel, and entered the Army May
13, 1943. He took refresher courses in anti-aircraft at Fort Benning, Ga., and
Camp Croft, later transferring to the infantry. Prior to going overseas he was
stationed at Fort Eustis, Va., Campu Hulen, Tex., and at the Adjutant General
school in Washington.
Before entering the service Lieutenant Hagood was a director in the
Glenwood Cotton mills at Easley, and at the Pickens mill.
He was the son of Mrs. Bruce Hagood, of the Poinsett hotel, Greenville, and
the late Mr. Hagood, of Easley. Besides his mother and wife, he is survived
by two children, Starke, and Albert Hagood, Jr., and by a sister, Mrs. R.A.
Blakey, of Greenville.
Lieutenant Hagood’s wife, who was the former Miss Dorothy Grogan, is
residing with her sister, Mrs. Bert Winters, in Palm Beach, Fla.
