Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Horace John Foley (23 November 1900 – 3 July 1989) was an Australian medical practiotioner and mayor of Glebe. Foley was born at Mudgee to schoolteacher James Foley and Margaret Mary, née English. He attended Mudgee High School before studying medicine at the University of Sydney, from which he graduated in 1926. He practised first at Strathfield before moving to Glebe, where he worked for the rest of his career. He married Sarah Agnes May Farmer at St Joseph's Catholic Church in Rockdale on 23 November 1932. Foley was a member of the Australian Labor Party, and supported Premier Jack Lang in the 1930s split. He ran unsuccessfully for the state seat of Burwood in 1932 before winning election to Glebe Council in December 1934, serving as mayor in 1937 and 1938. He clashed with Lang and in December 1937 led his own group, the "Foley Labor Party", which defeated Lang's forces at the municipal elections. In 1938 he ran for the state seat of Glebe for the Industrial Labor Party, which opposed Lang.
