1213) Dan Moody

Daniel James Moody Jr. (1893 – 1966). American politician from the Democratic party. Originally from Taylor, Texas, he served as the 30th Governor of Texas between 1927 and 1931. At the age of 33, he was elected and took office as the youngest governor in Texas history. After his two terms as Governor, he returned to private law practice and continued to prosecute and represent various functions of the United States government through his later life.
