Isaac Lawrence Milliken (August 29, 1815 – December 2, 1885; buried in Rosehill Cemetery) served as mayor of Chicago, Illinois from 1854 to 1855. He was a member of the Democratic Party.

Born in Saco, Maine, Milliken moved to Chicago in 1837 and set up a blacksmith shop on Randolph Street.[1][2] Here, Milliken taught himself law and was twice elected alderman and appointed an assistant county judge.[2]

In the election of 1854, Milliken defeated Amos G. Throop, who ran on the Temperance Party ticket, with nearly 60% of the vote.[3][4] Although Throop was the temperance candidate, after winning the election, Milliken declared himself in favor of temperance as well.[5] He ran for re-election the following year against Levi Boone, of the American Party and lost with 47% of the vote.[6]

Following his term as mayor, Milliken stayed in public service, becoming a police magistrate.[7]
