Biography

Born in Richmond, Virginia, Gary was a graduate of the University of Richmond (B.A., 1912, LL.B., 1915). He was admitted to the bar in 1915 and commenced practice in Richmond, Virginia. Gary served in the United States Army during World War I, and subsequently served as counsel and executive assistant of the Virginia tax board from 1919–1924. From 1926-33, Gary served in the Virginia House of Delegates. Gary also served as member of the board of trustees of the University of Richmond.

Gary was elected as a Democrat to the Seventy-ninth Congress by special election, March 6, 1945, to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Dave E. Satterfield, Jr. He was reelected to the nine succeeding Congresses and served from March 6, 1945, to January 3, 1965, during which time he was a signatory to the 1956 Southern Manifesto that opposed the desegregation of public schools ordered by the Supreme Court in Brown v. Board of Education. He was not a candidate for renomination in 1964 to the Eighty-ninth Congress, and he subsequently resumed this private law practice in Richmond. Upon his retirement, Gary continued to reside in Richmond, where he died September 6, 1973. He is buried in Hollywood Cemetery.
