David C. Reed

Daniel C. Reed (1847-1938)

Daniel C. Reed (June 1847–March 12, 1938) was an American Republican politician from California.

D. C. Reed was born 1847 in Wisconsin.[1] In 1870, he came to San Diego[2] where he became an attorney and real estate and insurance agent. During the boom years of 1886–1888, he was one of the five developers of Pacific Beach.

Reed was active in politics. In 1872 and 1884 he was delegate to the Republican State Convention. He canvassed the state for Grant and Wilson in 1872 and for Hayes and Wheeler in 1876. Reed was Alderman for San Diego in 1891, Harbor Commissioner in 1893, and Fire Commissioner in 1895.[3]

Reed was mayor of San Diego, California during 1897–1898. Although a Republican, the San Diego Union, a Republican paper, refused to support Reed, although he still won. The Union gave as its reason because he was affiliated with the Municipal Ownership Club which allegedly was supported by the San Diego Flume Company. The Union supported the rival Southern California Mountain Water Company.

Reed married Julia, who was born July 1854,[4] and they had multiple children.

Reed was one of the officials at the 1915 Panama-California Exposition. He died in 1938.
