Sophie Masloff Waves Photo

On July 2, 1989, Pittsburgh Mayor Sophie Masloff waves goodbye to residents of the Garfield Senior High Rise after hearing tenant complaints. Ms. Masloff brought a unique sense of style to the mayor’s office when she ascended to the post in 1988. Who couldn’t love a grandmotherly politician who proudly spoke “Pittsburghese”?
For all her folksy, unpolished charm, though, Ms. Masloff was a determined civic leader. She was elected to city council in a 1976 special election, and was reelected three times. As city council president, she assumed the role of mayor in 1988 after the death of Mayor Richard Caligiuri. Ms. Masloff became Pittsburgh’s first female and first Jewish mayor. She was elected to a full term in 1989 but four years later decided against seeking another term and retired to her home in Squirrel Hill. Photo by Melissa Farlow
