Chicago Mayor. He served as Mayor of Chicago, Illinois from 1933 to 1947, assuming the vacancy in the office after the death of Mayor Anton Cermack, who was mortally wounded in February 1933 during an assassination attempt on President-elect Franklin D. Roosevelt in Miami, Florida. He previously served as chief engineer of Chicago's sanitation department, and as a member of the City Council. During his tenure as mayor corruption was known to be rampant under him. One of his accomplishments was the unprecedented appointment of African-Americans in city government regardless of previous political leanings, and his part in building the Democratic political machine that endured through to the 21st Century.
