Eugene C. Keyes (August 23, 1900 – 1963) was a Lieutenant Governor in the US state of Michigan from 1943–45 and again from 1947-49.


Early life and education

Born in Dearborn, Michigan, Keyes studied as a doctor and lawyer, receiving several degrees. In 1921, the Royal College of Dental Surgeons awarded him a Doctor of Dental Surgery, followed by a Doctor of Medicine degree from Wayne State University in 1930. In 1932, he founded the Keyes Diagnostic Clinic in Dearborn. In 1935, Keyes earned a law degree from the Detroit College of Law.

Political career

Before serving as Lieutenant Governor, Keyes was a County Supervisor and City Councilman in his home city. He was affiliated with the Republican Party. Keyes served as Lieutenant Governor under two governors, Harry Kelly from 1943–45 and Kim Sigler from 1947–49, both of whom were also Republicans.

In 1965, two years after Keyes death, the clinic he founded was demolished to make way for parking lots.
