** Anton J. Cermak **

Born - May 9, 1873

Died - March 6, 1933 (Gunshot wounds)

In-Office - Aril 7, 1931 - March 6, 1933, as 44TH mayor of Chicago. 


** Death **

While shaking hands with President-elect Franklin D. Roosevelt at Bayfront Park in Miami, Florida on February 15, 1933, Cermak was shot in the lung and mortally wounded by Giuseppe Zangara, who was attempting to assassinate Roosevelt. At the critical moment, Lillian Cross, a woman standing near Zangara, hit Zangara's arm with her purse and spoiled his aim. In addition to Cermak, Zangara hit four other people: Margaret Kruis, 21, of Newark, NJ, shot through the hand; Russell Caldwell, 22, of Miami, hit squarely in the forehead by a spent bullet which embedded itself under the skin; Mabel Gill of Miami, shot in the abdomen; and William Sinnott, a New York police detective, who received a glancing blow to the forehead and scalp. All four of those injuries were minor.


Cermak died at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami on March 6, partly because of his wounds.
