Earl Douglas "Doug" Applegate, Jr. (born March 27, 1928) is a former member of the United States House of Representatives from Ohio. Applegate is a Democrat.

Life and career

Applegate was born in Steubenville, Ohio, the son of Mary (Lougacre) and Earl Douglas Applegate.[1] He attended local public schools, and graduated from Steubenville High School in 1947, after which he engaged in the real estate business. In 1960, Applegate was elected to the Ohio House of Representatives, and was reelected in 1962, 1964 and 1966. By 1968, he had moved up to the Ohio Senate, and was reelected once more in 1972.

In 1976, Congressman Wayne Hays opted to retire, and Applegate was looked upon as the frontrunner to replace him.[2] He went on to win that November.[3] He served a total of nine terms in the United States House of Representatives. By 1994, Applegate had served almost two decades in the House, and opted to retire.[4] He was succeeded by Bob Ney.


The United States Post Office at 150 N. 3rd Street, Steubenville was designated the "Douglas Applegate Post Office" on July 9, 1997.[5]
