Seattle Mayor. He was elected mayor of Seattle on March 9, 1896. A graduate of Wooster University in Ohio, he began his early career in banking. He reluctantly allowed his name to be placed in nomination for the office of Seattle mayor by friends and associates, although he had no personal desire or political ambitions to become city mayor. He resigned three weeks into office after becoming disillusioned with political office seekers and professional politicians. He served as president of the Wallace Lumber Company, vice president of the Sterling Ship Company and was a principal stockholder and director of the Seattle Hardware Company. He was succeeded in office by William D. Wood. (bio by: Nils M. Solsvik Jr.)
