Newton D. Baker (1871-1937) served as the 37th mayor of Cleveland and Secretary of War from 1916-1921. As Secretary during WWI, he presided over the US military participation for the war. He notably selected John J. Pershing to head the American Expeditionary Forces. After leaving government office, he was a principle litigator in the case of Village of Euclid v. Ambler Realty Company, which established precedent for the constitutionality of zoning laws. In 1932 he was a candidate for President of the United States, but the convention chose Franklin D. Roosevelt.
