Fred J. Burrell (born March 12, 1889)[2]was an Massachusetts businessman and politician who served in the Massachusetts House of Representatives and as Treasurer and Receiver-General of Massachusetts from January 21, 1920–September 3, 1920.

1917 Massachusetts Constitutional Convention

In 1916 the Massachusetts legislature and electorate approved a calling of a Constitutional Convention.[6] In May of 1917,[2] Burell was elected to serve as a member of the Massachusetts Constitutional Convention of 1917, representing the 26th Middlesex District of the Massachusetts House of Represent5atives[1]

Massachusetts Treasurer

Elected Treasurer in 1919, Burrell resigned from the position on September 3, 1920. Burrell resigned following an investigation by a special legislative committee, which revealed that banks using the services of an advertising agency owned by Burrell received increased amounts of state money. [7]

Burrell ran for Treasurer twice after his resignation, losing to Charles F. Hurley in 1930 and John E. Hurley in 1944. [8]
