Josiah Quincy

The Boston mayoral election of 1895 occurred on Tuesday, December 10, 1895. Democratic candidate Josiah Quincy defeated Republican candidate and incumbent Mayor of Boston Edwin Upton Curtis, and one other contender, to win election to his first term.[1]

Due to a change of the city charter in June 1895,[2] this was the first Boston mayoral election for a two-year term; prior mayoral elections had been held annually.

Quincy was inaugurated on Monday, January 6, 1896.[3] His grandfather Josiah Quincy IV (known as Josiah Quincy Jr.) and great-grandfather Josiah Quincy III also had served as Mayors of Boston.[4]
