1919-1923 Alexander Wilds Chambliss

colorseal smFormer Mayor Alexander Chambliss ran for a third term of service using the slogan: “A good name is as worth while to a city as it is for a man.”   During Mayor Chambliss’ third term in office, the Tivoli Theater opened, construction of the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium began, and the city’s first airport opened.  Mayor Chambliss and the city commission also changed traffic within the city as they passed an ordinance banning horse-drawn vehicles on Market Street.

Mayor Chambliss was re-elected in 1923. However, he resigned from the office a month later to accept an appointment to the Tennessee Supreme Court.
