George A. Hibbard
Republican

The Boston mayoral election of 1907 occurred on Tuesday, December 10, 1907. Republican candidate George A. Hibbard defeated Democratic candidate John F. Fitzgerald, the incumbent Mayor of Boston, and John A. Coulthurst, an Independence League candidate. Primary elections for each party had been held on Thursday, November 14, 1907.

This was the final Boston mayoral election for a two-year term, and that was partisan in nature; a new city charter adopted in 1909 made the mayoral term four years, and made Boston municipal elections non-partisan.[1]

Hibbard was inaugurated on Monday, January 6, 1908.[2]
