Charles Boxton
Birth: Apr. 24, 1860
Death: Aug. 29, 1927

San Francisco Mayor. A California native, Boxton graduated from college with a degree in dentistry. In 1896, Boxton was a co-founder of the College of Physicians & Surgeons, and later would serve as the college's dean. With the outbreak of the Spanish-American War, Boxton left his dental practice and joined the United States Army, leaving at war's end as a Lieutenant Colonel. In 1899, Charles Boxton was elected onto to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, a position he held until 1907. In 1907, San Francisco mayor Eugene Schmitz was forced out of office under allegations of corruption and graft. With the mayor seat vacant, the Board of Supervisors elected Boxton to fill the vacancy, becoming San Francisco's 27th mayor. However, it was soon revealed that he had also been taking bribes, forcing him to resign after only one week in office. (bio by: G.Photographer)
