“There will be radical changes in how older adults live due to numerous factors that recently have challenged our economy,” says Tom Hogan, whose father-in-law, a retired university professor, lives at Smith Village.
“Our original campus, situated in Chicago’s Beverly neighborhood, opened in 1924,” Hogan notes. “Smith Village has endured many economic downturns, including the Great Depression. But because it has remained true to its mission of providing a safe, secure and rewarding way of life for its residents, it still anchors our neighborhood.”
A lifelong Beverly resident, Tom Hogan has been committed to community service. For seven years, he contributed on the board of the Beverly Area Planning Association including a term as president from 1999 through 2001. He has also been a member of the alumni board of the University of Notre Dame, where he earned his bachelor’s degree, and served on the alumni board of St. Ignatius High School.
After graduating from IIT/Chicago Kent College of Law in 1980, he practiced for 17 years as a trial attorney representing railroads in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin. Elected to the bench in August 1997, Retired Judge Hogan presided over more than 400 cases to verdict.
