Brenton D. Babcock
Birth: Oct. 2, 1830
Death: Jan. 9, 1906

Mayor of Cleveland. Born in Adams, New York, he graduated from Watertown College and moved to Cleveland in 1865. Finding employment in the coal industry, he rose from bookeeper to partner of a successful trading and mining firm, Babcock & Morris Co., in 1878. A Democrat, Babcock was elected Mayor of Cleveland and served from 1887 to 1888; his uneventful term consisted primarily of rubber-stamping legislation pushed by the local Democratic Party machine. He was also a prominent Freemason and founded Cleveland's Scottish Rite Masonry. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
