Magee was born in Groveland, New York on May 23, 1861, a son of farmers Marietta (Patchin) Magee and John Magee, who served as a colonel in the state militia.[1][2] He attended the local schools and the Wadsworth Normal and Training School (now the State University of New York at Geneseo).[1] Magee graduated from Harvard University in 1889, and delivered the class oration at his graduation ceremony.[3] He then studied law at the Syracuse firm of Baldwin & Kennedy, and was admitted to the bar in 1891.[1][4] He practiced law in Syracuse until 1904, and gained a reputation as a skilled trial attorney.[1] Magee was also a talented athlete, and competed in tennis tournaments and other events.[5]

A Republican, Magee served on the Onondaga County Board of Supervisors from 1892 to 1893.[1] From 1904 to 1914, Magee served as Syracuse's corporation counsel.[1]

In 1914, Magee won election to the House of Representatives.[1] He was reelected six times, and served until his death.[1] During his House career, Magee was appointed to the Appropriations Committee, and he rose through seniority to become chairman of its subcommittee on Agriculture.[6]

Death and burial

Magee died in Syracuse on May 25, 1927.[1] He was buried at Oakwood Cemetery in Syracuse.[1]


In 1895, Magee married Sarah Genevieve Wood (1873-1937), who was usually called Genevieve.[7][8] They had no children.[8] Genevieve Wood was the daughter of US Army Brigadier General Palmer G. Wood (1843-1915).[7]
