HARRY CLIFFORD GOLDEN, attorney at law, whose progress in his profession and public favor has been really remarkable, is one of the leading lawyers of Kittanning. He was born in that borough Jan. 9, 1882, son of Edward Sullivan and Sarah (Gates) Golden, and grandson of John Golden. Of his father, Edward S. Golden, for years a notably successful attorney at the Armstrong county bar, extensive mention will be found elsewhere in this work, accompanying his portrait.

Harry C. Golden attended public and high school in Kittanning, and later the academy in the borough for a two-year course. He then entered Trinity College, Hartford, Conn., and, after four years, was graduated from that institution as valedictorian of his class, in 1903. He was a member of the Psi Upsilon Fraternity. During his college career he won the Holland Prize Scholarship, paying about $600 per annum, for two consecutive years. He studied law in the office of his brother, H. L. Golden, Kittanning, Pa., and was admitted to the bar of Armstrong county in 1905; to practice in the Superior court of Pennsylvania, May, 1909; in the Supreme court of Pennsylvania, Oct. 4, 1909; in the United States District court, Pittsburgh, Pa, March 29, 1911; and in the Circuit court of Appeals of the United States, for the Third circuit, Philadelphia, Pa., November, 1911. Since 1905 he has been practicing his profession in Kittanning with gratifying success. Like his father, he belongs to the Episcopal Church, and is, at the present time, treasurer of St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Kittanning, Pa., and a teacher in the Sunday School. In politics he is a Democrat. Among the most important cases in which Mr. Golden has been concerned as counsel are: Liquid Carbonic Company vs. Truby, reported in Pennsylvania Superior Court Reports, Vol. 40, Page 634; National Cash Register Company vs. Shurber, reported in Pennsylvania Superior Court Reports, Vol. 41, page 187; Weisfield vs. Beale, reported in Pennsylvania State Reports, Vol. 231, Page 39; Hare vs. O'Brien, reported in Pennsylvania State Reports, Vol. 233, Page 330, 82 Atlantic Reporter, 475, Lawyers' Reports Annotated, Vol. 39 (New Series), Page 430; Welsh vs. Kerr Coal Company, reported in Pennsylvania State Reports, Vol. 233, Page 341; Arctic Ice Machine Company, vs. Armstrong County Trust Company, Circuit Court of Appeals Reports, Vol. 112, Page 458, 192 Federal Reporter, Page 114. In all of the above cases, except Weisfield vs. Beale and Welsh vs. Kerr Coal Company, Harry C. Golden and his brother, H. L. Golden, were associated as council.
