James A. Haley Life

James Andrew Haley (January 4, 1899 – August 6, 1981) was a Florida representative. Haley, a native of Jacksonville, Alabama, attended the public schools and the University of Alabama.

Haley enlisted in Troop A, Second Cavalry, in April 1917 and served overseas during World War I.

He served as an accountant in Sarasota, Florida, from 1920 to 1933.

He served as the general manager of John Ringling's estate from 1933 to 1943. Haley married Aubrey Ringling (née Aubrey Barlow Black), the widow of Richard T. Ringling, who died in 1931.

Richard Ringling was the son of Alf T. Ringling, one of the original Ringling brothers from 1943 to 1945. He served as the first vice president of Ringling Circus and president and director of Ringling Bros.

Barnum & Bailey.

A fire broke out at a Ringling Circus show in Hartford, Connecticut, killing 169 people in 1944.

On the day of the fire, Haley was the highest ranking executive aboard the circus.

During the subsequent trial, he and five other circus performers pleaded no contest to charges of compulsory manslaughter, and were sentenced to prison.

He was withheld eight months and returned to Florida, where he received a pardon from Governor Millard F. Caldwell.

Barnum & Bailey from 1946 to 1948.

He later worked in newspaper printing and later in general printing.

He served as chairman of Sarasota County's Democratic executive committee from 1935 to 1952.

He served as a member of the Florida House of Representatives from 1949 to 1952.

He was delegated to the 1952, 1956, and 1960 Democratic National Conventions. Haley was elected a Democrat to the Eighty-third and the Eleven succeeding Congresses (January 3, 1953 – January 3, 1977), during which time he was a signatory to the 1956 Southern Manifesto condemning the desegregation of public schools ordered by the Supreme Court in Brown v. Board of Education.

He served as chairman of the Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs (Ninety-third and Ninety-fourth Congresses).

In the high-profile 1970 election for the United States Senate from Florida to select Spessard L. Holland, Haley, a state senator from Lakeland who secured a convincing victory over Republican nominee William C. Cramer of St. Petersburg, won easily over Republican nominee William C. Cramer of St. Petersburg.

Cramer was "little in stature and large in mouth," Haley said, and that the Republican nominee should "talk less and work harder." In 1976, Haley did not run for reelection to the Ninety-Fifth Congress. Haley died in Sarasota on August 6, 1981 and was laid to rest in Boca Raton Cemetery.

In Tampa, the James A. Haley Veterans Hospital named after him.
