Johnson (1854 - 1911) was an American industrialist, an important figure of the Progressive Era, and a pioneer in urban political and social reform. He was a U. S. Representative from Ohio from 1891 to 1895, and MAYOR OF CLEVELAND from 1901 to 1909. Johnson was one of the most well known, vocal, and dedicated admirers of Henry George's views on political economy and anti-monopoly reform. One of the campaign issues in 1900 was a valuable piece of city-owned downtown lakefront property, which the outgoing mayor and city council had agreed to give to the railroads without compensation. Johnson obtained a court injunction to stop the giveaway, but it was set to expire three days after the election. Taking advantage of a legal technicality to get the new mayor sworn in early, Johnson's men staged a surprise takeover of City Hall and saved the land for the city. Today this land holds Cleveland Browns Stadium, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Great Lakes Science Center. A 1999 poll of historians placed Johnson second on the list of best mayors in U. S. history, behind only Fiorello La Guardia of New York City. 2. George Dionysius Tillman (1826 - 1902) was a U. S. Representative from South Carolina from 1879 to 1882 and again from 1883 to 1893. His 1880 election was overturned by the House, and Republican Robert Smalls, his African-American opponent, was awarded the seat. During the Civil War he served in the 3rd South Carolina Infantry Regiment and in the 2nd South Carolina Artillery. He served as a state representative, state senator, and as a member of the Constitutional Convention in 1865, held under the Reconstruction proclamation of President Andrew Johnson. 3. William T. Crawford (1856 - 1913) was a U. S. Representative from North Carolina from 1891 to 1895, 1899 to 1900, and 1907 - 1909. 4. James Jerome Belden (1825 - 1904) was a U. S. Representative from New York from 1887 to 1895, and again from 1897 to 1899. He also served as mayor of Syracuse, New York.5. William Bourke Cockran (1854 - 1923) was a U. S. Representative from New York City from 1887 to 1889, 1891 to 1895, 1904 to 1909, and again from 1921 to 1923. He was a delegate to the Democratic National Conventions in 1884, 1892, 1904, and 1920. At the 1920 convention he delivered the nominating speech for AL SMITH. In 1895, Cockran, a friend of Britain's Churchill family and reputed one-time lover of Jennie Churchill, introduced her 20-year-old son, WINSTON CHURCHILL, to American high society during Churchill's first trip to New York. Years later, as British prime minister, Churchill credited Cockran as his first political mentor and the chief role model for his own success as an orator.6. Henry Bacon (1846 - 1915) was a U. S. Representative from New York from 1886 to 1889, and again from 1891 to 1893.7. Charles Tracey (1847 - 1905) was a U. S. Representative from New York from 1887 to 1895.
