Gov. Theodore McKeldin

A two-time mayor of Baltimore (1943-47 and 1963-67) who served as governor of Maryland from 1951-59 -- and as a Republican, hard to believe in this traditionally Democratic state -- McKeldin was long one of the Free State's most beloved pols. He was also a firm believer in civil rights, when that wasn't always the most popular position for a politician to espouse.
