Brand Whitlock, the reform mayor of Toledo from 1905 to 1913, is shown in this photograph from 1916. During World War I, Whitlock served as ambassador to Belgium, where he became close friends with the royal family and earned the nickname "Le Ministre Protecteur." The photograph measures 9.5" x 12.5" (24.13 x 31.75 cm). Whitlock (1869-1934) was born in Urbana, Ohio and was a journalist at the Chicago Herald before becoming interested in politics. He worked for several years under Samuel "Golden Rule" Jones, and succeeded Jones as mayor of Toledo. Whitlock was also an author, writing 18 books during his lifetime, including a 1914 autobiography, Forty Years of It.
