George B. Lyle was briefly mayor of Atlanta during the month of May in 1942. Roy LeCraw had fought a tough campaign against incumbent William Hartsfield and won on a slim margin but just a few months after taking office, he joined the army leaving mayor pro-tem Lyle until new elections could be held. In late May, Hartsfield was elected by a large margin being the only well-known candidate.
