About the person:

Taken from Wikipedia, "Walter Edward Washington (April 15, 1915 – October 27, 2003) was an American civil servant and politician. He was chief executive of Washington, D.C. from 1967 to 1979, serving as the first and only Mayor-Commissioner from 1967 to 1974 and as the first home-rule mayor of the District of Columbia from 1974 to 1979.

After a career in public housing in Washington, DC and New York City, he was appointed as mayor-commissioner of Washington, D.C. in 1967. He was the last mayor of Washington to be appointed by the President.

Congress had passed a law granting home rule to the capital, while reserving some authorities. Washington won the first mayoral election in 1974, and served until 1979."
