InfoRichard J. Daley was first elected Mayor of Chicago in April, 1955, becoming the 39th Chief Executive in the history of the city. (The April, 1955 mayoral election was the 65th mayoral election. A number of mayors served multiple terms.)
He was reelected in 1959, 1963 and in 1967 he became the first Chicago Mayor to be elected for a consecutive fourth four-year term. On April 23, 1969, Mayor Daley set a new record for serving as mayor longer than any other man in Chicago's history - a total of 14 years and 3 days. In 1975 Mayor Daley once again broke precedent when he was elected for a sixth four-year term as Mayor of Chicago. He died in office on December 20, 1976.
