Coralville Bull-Dozer's Ticket for A.W. Davis, 1870s-1890s

Dublin Core

Description

A ticket listing a single election choice to fill the political seats of the city of Coralville. Elections were held annually in March from 1874-1953; in 1954, elections were moved to November. (Lovetinsky et al., p. 86).

This ticket states the following:

"Coralville Bull-Dozer's Ticket.
For Mayor, A.W. Davis.
For Recorder, J.M Curry.
For Trustees, John H. Clark, John Williams, J.C. Wilson, Patrick McGahn, Chas. E. Robinson.
For Treasurer, Thomas R. Hackett
For Assessor, McDonald Stewart
For Street Commissioner, Thomas Curry."

It is unknown when this ticket was printed, but based on the names that appear, it can most likely be dated back to the 1870s-1890s. A.W. Davis is never listed in historical records as being the mayor of Coralville, so presumably this Bull-Dozer's ticket lost the election (Lovetinsky et al., p. 82-83).
