Biographical or historical data
Richard Yates Batterton was born in 1903 in Petersburg, Ill. He attended the University of Illinois and the U.S. Naval Academy before moving to Denver, Colo. in 1932. During World War II he worked as Director of the Office of Price Administration in Denver in charge of the gas rationing program. Batterton was appointed Manager of Public Works by Denver Mayor Will Nicholson in 1956. In 1959, he was elected as the thirty-third Mayor of Denver, Colo. Because of police corruption and financial difficulties, Batterton lost his bid for re-election in 1963. He subsequently served as a member of the Colorado Civil Service Commission. Batterton died in 1978.
