Poor Bertha, she deserved better. Bertha Knight Landes, that is. She was Seattle’s first and only woman mayor. In fact, she was the first female mayor of a major American city. She served from 1926 to 1928. Prior to that, she was president of the City Council and involved in many good government organizations in town. She ran because the corrupt city needed a good “housekeeper,” and she tried to do that by cracking down on crooked cops, illegal gambling and bootleggers.
