Making a Mayors box[edit]

When we have lots of articles written about the Mayors, would it be possible to make a Mayors of Lord Melbourne box, like the Prime Ministers or Premiers box (for Australia of course)?

Sure, I could whip one up. TPK 10:42, 19 Jun 2004 (UTC)
I've copied the table from the British monarchs articles for a Mayoralty table here, even though there are only 3 so far. I'm planning to write quite a few, if not all of these... in the future. TPK 03:59, 23 Jun 2004 (UTC)


I believe the Mayors and Lord Mayors need to be categorized (in time). The problem is, should there be just one Category:Mayors and Lord Mayors of Melbourne; or Category:Mayors of Melbourne and Category:Lord Mayors of Melbourne? There are a decent number of each so that the two categories wouldn't be too lonely. What's the go? TPK 03:59, 23 Jun 2004 (UTC)

I vote for the former. :) Ambivalenthysteria 07:39, 23 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Robert Bennett[edit]

Does anyone know a middle name or birth and death dates for Mayor Robert Bennett? I'm wanting to break up the existing Robert Bennett article (which presently covers three gentlemen) and want to differentiate them. Please reply to my talk page. PedanticallySpeaking 15:47, Aug 30, 2004 (UTC)

J. T. Smith[edit]

Michael Cannon, Melbourne After the Gold Rush, Main Ridge, Vic., Loch Haven Books, 1993 (ISBN 1-875308-12-1) refers to John Thomas Smith, a publican, as being mayor 7 times between 1851 and 1864 (p.120), including at the time of the Eureka rising in December 1854 (p.74), earning himself the title of 'Melbourne's Dick Whittington' (p.126). Yet he is not included in the list! (Walter, his brother, probably half-brother, was a member of the first municipal council in Castlemaine, Victoria, elected in 1856).

Gap in list[edit]

Um, what happened between 1971 and 1985? I was here then, and I distinctly remember Lord Mayors. Adam 13:37, 14 October 2005 (UTC)
