Gerhard Adolph Bading
Birth: Aug. 31, 1870
Death: Apr. 11, 1946

US Diplomat, Milwaukee Mayor. Born in Milwaukee, he studied medicine at Northwestern University and at Rush College in Chicago, where he took his MD in 1896. From 1901 to 1907 he taught at the Wisconsin College of Physicians and Surgeons. As Milwaukee Health Commissioner (1906 to 1910) he advocated more rigorous public health codes, including the licensing of all stores where food was prepared and sold. Bading was twice elected Mayor of Milwaukee, serving from 1912 to 1916; he ran as an independent, sponsored by a coalition of Democrats and Republicans organized to defeat Emil Seidel, the first Socialist to hold the city's top office. His second term was marred by an anti-labor stance (he vetoed an 8 hour workday ordinance) and charges of alleged corruption, and he was defeated for reelection by Socialist Daniel Hoan. In 1922 President Warren G. Harding appointed Bading US Envoy to Ecuador, a post he held until 1929. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
