What Old North Block Can Claim Four Davis Mayors? (33)

       The “500” block of E Street features the curiosity that no less than four people who served as mayors of Davis have lived on the block or owned property there.
       Actually, it is even more curious. All four have been involved in homes on only the west side of that block. 
      They are (from left to right in the four photos):
      1. Vigfus Admundson--Mayor 1970-71--spent much of his 1940s childhood at 503 E.

       2. William Kopper--Mayor 1982-83 has owned and rented-out 503 E for many years.

       3.  Susie Boyd--Mayor 2002-04-owned and lived at 527 E in the 1990s & early 2000s.

       4. Joan Poulos--Mayor 1974-75--owns and has lived at 539 E in various periods.
