George Alexander (September 21, 1839 – August 2, 1923) was a political figure who, from 1909 to 1913, served as the 28th mayor of Los Angeles, California.[1]

Born in Scotland's largest city, Glasgow, he moved with his parents to the United States at the age of 11. In 1862, during the second year of the Civil War, he married Annie Yeiser in Iowa and participated in combat after enlisting in the Iowa volunteers. After the war, he settled in the small Iowa city of Belle Plaine, and in 1870 started his own grain and feed business.

In 1887, at the age of 48, Alexander moved West to Los Angeles and expanded his grain business. By 1892, he began his governmental career in the County Recorder's office. In 1901, he was elected to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and served until 1909.[2] In 1909 he ran in a recall election against Mayor Arthur C. Harper, and became Mayor of Los Angeles on March 26, 1909 and served until July 1, 1913.[3][4][5]

George Alexander died in Los Angeles seven weeks before his 84th birthday and is interred in the city's Angelus-Rosedale Cemetery.[6]
