Robert Foster Maddox (April 4, 1870 – 1965) was the 41st Mayor of Atlanta, Georgia.
He was born on April 4, 1870 to Robert Flournoy Maddox, an early Atlanta settler and war hero.
He was chairman of the board of the Atlanta & Lowry National Bank part of which had been founded by his father. In 1908, he served as a Fulton County commissioner and the next year he was elected Atlanta's mayor. He had an active term, issuing the city's first large bond ($3 million) which was used for new schools, sewage disposal plants and enlarging the Atlanta Water Works.
During his term, the city doubled in scope: adding Oakland City among other neighborhoods.
He died in 1965.
Maddox Road in Morrow, Ga is named after him, along with a Clayton County Parks and Recreation park, playground, and basketball court in Morrow, Ga.
