Interesting information on life, career, accomplishments:

Daniel Congreve was Mayor of Mount Prospect from 1965 to 1969. He was a “Back to Basics” kind of Mayor. He ran on a platform of returning to the traditional values of the community and campaigned by riding around town in a horse drawn wagon. He is the only Mayor who left office with the boundaries of Mount Prospect unchanged, as the community did not expand at all during his administration. Part of the reason for this was that he spent much of his time in office involved in legal battles with Salvatore DiMucci, a regional developer. While he was in office, both his administration and the country as a whole were caught up in turbulence and social unrest.
