What will it profit this country if we… put our man on the Moon by 1970 and at the same time you can’t walk down Woodward Avenue in this city without fear of some violence?

|Birth:||16th June, 1928|
|Death:||27th November, 1979|
Jerome Patrick Cavanagh was born in Detroit, Michigan, USA. He was an American Democratic politician. He was the mayor of Detroit from 1962 to 1970. The victory was a complete upset against the incumbent, Louis Miriani, and at the time, he was the youngest person to ever be elected to this office at only 33 years of age. In 1966, he ran for US Senator but lost to G. Mennen Williams in the primary. Initially seen as another John F. Kennedy, his reputation was doomed by the 1967 riots. He attended the University of Detroit Mercy, earning an undergraduate degree in 1950 and a law degree in 1954, and practiced law in Detroit after graduation.
