A series of letters written primarily by Virginia Warren, who was secretary to Los Angeles lawyer Frank J. Hogan, to George W. Johnston Jr. and his wife Bess Johnston, concerning personal matters and the work of Hogan's law office.
Francis Joseph Hogan was an American lawyer who co-founded the firm of Hogan & Hartson in 1904 and served as president of the American Bar Association from 1938 to 1939. Virginia "Ginger" Warren worked at the firm as Hogan's secretary. Hogan's most notable case was his defense of oil tycoon Edward L. Doheny and the Pan-American Petroleum and Transport Company in a series of trials from 1924 to 1930. George W. Johnston Jr. was a board member of the Doheny Oil Company, and the co-executor of Estelle Doheny's estate.
