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


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]

The George B. Miller & Co. tobacco business became famous as one of the first makers of the fine cut variety of chewing tobacco. Mickle eventually inherited the business and renamed it A. H. Mickle & Sons. He expanded the firm and its product line, and became wealthy as a result. He later renamed the business A. H. Mickle & Sons.[2]

A Democrat affiliated with the Tammany Hall organization, in 1845 he won election as Mayor of New York City, taking advantage of a four-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 Bayside, Queens on January 25, 1863.[4] He was buried at Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn.[5]
