Politician. Governor of Utah from 1941 to 1949. His two terms as Governor were marked by progressive legislation that lowered utility rates, regulated the extraction of mineral ores, and enlarged the state's industrial base. Maw's liberal stance regarding labor and welfare legislation and land reclamation produced much conservative hostility. He attempted to win a third term as Governor in 1948, but was soundly defeated by Republican J. Bracken Lee.
