Robert Maxwell Morrow
Robert Maxwell Morrow

Born in Hamilton Bob Morrow first ran for public office in 1968. He won an aldermanic seat but was disqualified because he did not appear on the assessment roll. His father George Morrow ran in the by-election and was elected. Bob ran again in the 1970 municipal election and was elected Alderman for Ward One. In 1972 he later was elected to Board of Control and re-elected to that position in 1974, 1976 and 1978 topping the polls in the latter two elections thus becoming deputy mayor. When Board of Control was abolished in 1980 he left politics but returned in 1982 to run for Mayor. He was elected and became Mayor of Hamilton in 1983. He went on to become the longest serving Mayor in the history of Hamilton, serving until 2000. In the election to choose the first Mayor for the newly amalgamated city of Hamilton, he was defeated by Robert E. Wade of Ancaster.  In March of 2005 Bob Morrow was appointed a Citizenship Judge.
