InfoAndrew Jackson Bettwy, an Arizona Democrat, served as Mayor of Nogales, Arizona, from 1935 to 1937. Bettwy was in the first class of the University of Arizona law school (the James E. Rogers College of Law) when it opened in 1915, though he did not finish his studies there.

Bettwy was the son of André Bettwy (1867-1951) and Mary Billand (1863-1939), natives of Alsace who immigrated to the United States and settled in Altoona, Pennsylvania. Bettwy had two sons, Andrew Leo Bettwy (1920-2004), Arizona State Land Commissioner (1970-1978) and William Frederick Bettwy (1918-2005) of Pine Bluff, Arkansas, the first commercial pilot to land at Washington Dulles Airport.

Bettwy married Mary Chenoweth, a dual citizen of Mexico and the United States, who was County Recorder of Santa Cruz County, Arizona, for 34 years.

Bettwy is most remembered in Arizona folklore for flattening William Mathews, the publisher of the Arizona Daily Star, during Mathews' anti-Roosevelt New Deal speech at the 1936 Arizona State Democratic Convention in Tucson, Arizona.
