Warren Dorn on left shaking hands w/unidentified man. Warren Dorn was born in Pasadena in 1918. He began his political career in 1956, when he was elected to the Pasadena City Board of Directors, becoming mayor from 1955 to 1956, at the age of 37 and was thus known as “The Boy Mayor.” Mr. Dorn served 16 years on the board. He was closely involved in the effort to bring the Brooklyn Dodgers to the Southland and was an early campaigner to control air pollution. Mr. Dorn was also a community leader in La Canada, becoming a local hero for his efforts to block construction of the 210 Freeway. He also served as mayor of Morro Bay when he moved to that town, and also became president of Morro Bay Beautiful. Mr. Dorn passed away in 2006 at the age of 87 (Cooper, 2006).
