Simon Bamberger was the fourth governor of Utah (1917–1921), as well as the first Jewish governor and the first Democratic governor of the State. He was governor during the Progressive Era and led many political and social reforms—such as the establishment of a public utilities commission, the Department of Health, and Prohibition—and he pushed for improved roads, rails, and public utilities.
