Rosehill Cemetery and Mausoleum: Mayor Lester Bond
Lester L. Bond
Acting MAYOR of Chicago

During his term as Mayor, in August 1873 Joseph Medill gave up his responsibilities and appointed Lester L. Bond as Acting Mayor in his place. Bond served out the remainder of Medill's term.1 He then sought election to a second term, but was defeated by Harvey Colvin. 2

As Mayor Medill never officially resigned his office, Bond was not officially Mayor of Chicago, and thus has no number indicating his position in that list, despite carrying out the functions of the office.

Location: southwest of the Harris mausoleum, on southern edge of section.
