Outgoing Denver Mayor in 1955

Hello Readers,

In my research for my novel, Counterfeit Honor, I found the list of mayors who have served the Denver people.

The thirty sixth mayor…”Quigg Newton (1947–1955) An attorney and very successful businessman, Quigg Newton was elected Mayor of Denver in 1947 and served for two terms. The grandson of a Colorado Territory pioneer and a World War II veteran, Newton is largely credited with the modernization of the Denver city government, due to his extensive knowledge of external funding resources. Additionally, Mayor Newton created the Mayor’s Committee on Human Relations in 1948.” Click here to view the site where this quote was taken and learn more about Mayor Newton.

Enjoy,

Leeann
