Henry W. Maier was mayor of Milwaukee from 1960 until 1988. Although he was born in Dayton, Ohio, a great deal of his schooling happened in Wisconsin. He earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin--Madison and a master's degree from the University of Wisconsin--Milwaukee. During his term as mayor, Maier was not a popular figure in Milwaukee's black community. He was known for having a very tense and strained relationship with local blacks. Many felt that he largely ignored the needs of the city's impoverished black residents and kept his allegiance to those who had put him in office. Maier was also not an advocate of the Civil Rights Movement.
