Long Description:
"Milwaukee born and educated, lawyer Carl F. Zeidler became Milwaukee's 33rd mayor in April, 1940, when he defeated Daniel W. Hoan, Socialist mayor since 1916. In April, 1942, Zeidler left office to enter service as a U.S. Navy Lieutenant (j.g.). On the night of November 7, 1942, the merchant ship "LaSalle," on which he commanded a gunnery crew, was torpedoed off Capetown, South Africa, with the loss of all hands.
