  • Notes 
    • Dr. W. Pipe, Mayor 1871.

      Dr. William Pipe had the distinction of being elected first mayor of the town of Berlin. He was a self-made man. A woodturner by trade, he determined to study for the medical profession and worked his way through college. When he became a physician, he built up a wide practice and won the confidence of his fellow-citizens. He took an interest in municipal matters and his habits of frugality, practised in early life, and his intelligence, led to his being chosen to fill the mayor's chair when Berlin became a town. His public duties were carefully and conscientiously discharged.1a
