List of Mayors of Mobile between 1911–1985 (President of the City Commission)[edit]

From 1911–1985, Mobile was governed by a three member city commission. The office of Mayor of Mobile rotated between the members of the commission and was the title given to the President of the Commission. The last directly elected Mayor before the institution of the commission was Patrick J. Lyons. He was the 40th mayor of Mobile. Lyons would go on to be elected to the City Commission where he would serve as Mayor several more times. After several commissioners had faced corruption indictments and popular support grew for discarding the old commission system, Mobile restored direct elections in 1985, electing Arthur Outlaw as their first directly elected Mayor since 1911. The numbers listed correspond to their order within the overall list of the Mayors of Mobile, not their order in presiding over the commission.
