Mayors

The city of Medford Oregon is in Jackson County and was organized in 1885 (reference needed.) Many of its citizens have held
the office of Mayor. Listed below are the names, terms, and photographs (when available) of Medford's mayors over the years.

The photos were provided by Ben Truwe, Medford historian, the City of Medford, and the Southern Oregon Historical Society.
As you can see, we are missing many photos. If you can help us locate them, please contact us.
