He served in the Illinois House of Representatives from 1931-1941 and as State's Attorney of Cook County from 1957-1960, heading the second largest prosecutor's office in the United States. After losing a mayoral bid in 1963, he was inactive in politics, but reemerged in 1970, when he ran for Cook County Assessor.
