Charles E. Bowles
Birth: Mar. 24, 1884
St. Clair County
Michigan, USA
Death: Jul. 30, 1957
Wayne County
Michigan, USA

Only Mayor of Detroit to be recalled from office. Sworn in as mayor on January 14, 1930, he was voted out of office in a recall election on July 22, 1930 over charges that he had allowed vice and corruption to flourish and comiserated with gangsters and the Ku Klux Klan. An outspoken radio talk-show host, who called for the resignation of the mayor, Jerry Buckley, was killed in the lobby of the LaSalle Hotel later that evening. (Jerry Buckley was buried at Mr. Olivet in Detroit). Bowles later ran unsuccessfully for both Michigan State House, and U.S. House seats. (bio by: Miss Morgan)
