William Donald Schaefer

Mayor for life. Hizzoner. Mayor Annoyed. Willie Don. You don't earn that many nicknames unless you've been loved and admired (or hated and despised) by lots of people; no Baltimore mayor wore the title more proudly. Sure, he served eight years as governor of Maryland after leaving City Hall in 1987, but he'll always be Mayor Schaefer to us.
