From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

John D. M. Hamilton (c.1892-1973) was a Republican politician from the U.S. state of Kansas.

Hamilton of Topeka was chairman of the Kansas Republican Party in 1931 and chairman of the Republican National Committee from 1936-40. He was also a delegate to the 1936 and 1940 Republican National Conventions.

In 1940, Hamilton at the age of 48 resigned from the RNC and two days later married Jane Kendall Mason, 30 who a month earlier divorced George Grant Mason Jr., member of the Civil Aeronautics Board in Tampa, Florida. According to former first lady Grace Coolidge, Jane Kendall was "the most beautiful debutante who ever entered the White House". [1]

His picture was on Time's cover on September 23, 1936.[2]
