Andrew H. Mickle (October 25, 1805 – January 25, 1863) was the 67th Mayor of New York City from 1846 to 1847.

Biography[edit]

Andrew Hutchins Mickle was born in New York City. As a young man he married the daughter of George B. Miller, a tobacco dealer, afterwards working in his father in law's firm.[1]

Mickle expanded the George B. Miller & Co. tobacco business, which he eventually inherited, becoming wealthy as a result. He later renamed the business A. H. Mickle & Co.[2]

A Democrat, in 1845 he won election as Mayor of New York City, taking advantage of a three way race to win with a plurality. After serving one two-year term Mickle declined to run for reelection and returned to his business interests.[3]

Mickle died in New York City on January 25, 1863.[4]
