Guy Bogart is seen here hard at work at his desk. By the many pictures and figurines of cats on and around his desk, it is evident that Bogart is quite the admirer of cats. In 1924 Guy Bogart was elected to the Beaumont City Council, and belonged to virtually every other organization in the town of Beaumont. Bogart also served as the Mayor of Beaumont and the President of the Beaumont Chamber of Commerce.
