From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Beryl Franklin Carroll (March 15, 1860 – December 16, 1939) was the 20th Governor of Iowa from 1909-1913.

Carroll was born in Davis County, Iowa; he graduated from the Missouri State Normal School (now Truman State University) in 1884. He worked as a livestock dealer, teacher, and newspaper publisher. He was a member of the Iowa Senate (1895-98), postmaster of Bloomfield, Iowa (1898-1903), and Iowa state auditor (1903-09). He was elected Governor in 1908 and reelected in 1910. On November 30, 1910, Governor Carroll was hailed as a hero for entering a burning building in Des Moines and retrieving a trunk containing valuable property. After leaving office, Carroll worked in the life insurance business in Des Moines. He died in Bloomfield, Iowa, and was buried at the Odd Fellows Cemetery in Bloomfield, Iowa.
