Frank Corr

Thirty-Seventh Mayor of the City of Chicago (1933)

After the assassination of Mayor Anton Cermak, Democratic machine boss Pat Nash proposed 17th ward Alderman Frank Corr to act as temporary mayor. Nash knew Corr to be uncharismatic and unambitious, and had put him forth because he knew Corr would not try to use the power to take things over. Nash succeeded and Corr was elected mayor pro tem.1
