San Francisco Mayor. Born in Philadelphia and a graduate of Mount St. Mary's College of Emmitsburg, Maryland, Hyde studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1842. With the coming of the Mexican War, he volunteered for service and was appointed clerk to Commodore Robert F. Stockton of the US Navy. Arriving with Stockton in Monterrey, California in July 1846, he was soon discharged and moved to the town of Yerba Buena, later to be renamed San Francisco, a month later. In December 1846, he was appointed acting Alcalde (Mayor) of San Francisco after Alcalde Washington Bartlett was briefly taken prisoner by Californian forces, a post he held until January 1847. In June 1847 he was appointed the third American Alcalde (Mayor) of San Francisco serving until April 1848. (bio by: G.Photographer)
