Lawyer, Republican politician, and business executive of Seattle who served one term as mayor of Seattle and three as governor of Washington.

Arthur Langlie served as mayor of Seattle from 1938 to 1940, and led the effort to rehabilitate Seattle after the Great Depression. He was the Republican gubernatorial nominee in 1940, and won, thanks largely to a deeply divided Democratic party. During his time as governor, he was involved in the proposed Columbia Valley Administration and the public power movement. He served three terms. He died in Seattle in 1966.
