Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge
Kevin Hagan White (statue below) was the longest-serving Mayor of Boston, from 1968 to 1984. His successful run, at age 38, in 1967 was based on a populist platform highlighted by support for rent control. White unsucessfully ran for Governor of Massachusetts against Republican Frank Sarent in 1970. In 1972, he was a front runner for the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nomination, but the offer was withdrawn after Ted Kennedy and economist John Kenneth Galbraith voiced their opposition. In the 1970's White presided over the public school segregation controversy and the revitalization of downtown, culminating with the reopening of Quincy Market in 1976.
