He received his early education, according to Morice his secretary, from "a marvellous severe and cruel schoolmaster," whose discipline must have been severe indeed to deserve this special mention in an age when no schoolmaster bore the rod in vain. The same authority tells us that he was initiated by his father in those field sports, such as hunting and hawking, which formed one of his recreations in after life. To early training he also owed the skilful horsemanship for which he was conspicuous. At the age of fourteen he was sent by his mother, who had in become a widow, to Cambridge.
After service as a United States Army officer where one of his assignments was as a company commander with the st Airborne Division he returned home and was elected to Brentwood Council in Brentwood Towne Square[ edit ] In Cranmer ran for a seat on Brentwood council stating that he would bring a new grocery store to the community.
But after his election Cranmer found his campaign promise was easier said than done when grocery chains he contacted disparaged the condition of the current shopping center and the topography of the land where it sat.
Understanding that the Brentwood-Whitehall Shopping Center was in an advanced state of deterioration and had fallen into bankruptcyhe initiated a plan to create an economic development corporation Brentwood Economic Development Corporation, later expanded and renamed Economic Development South to work with developers in addressing the commercial needs of Brentwood specifically and later expanded to serve other communities in the South Hills of Allegheny County.
The firm, which had contracted with Brentwood to provide cable television services, added without notice or approval two explicitly adult pay-per-view channels, Playboy TV and Spice Networksand was done to test market the service.
When a subscriber television was turned on it would automatically "default" to one of the adult channels, each being lightly scrambled but still providing full uncensored audio. These "mechanical" features made contact with the channels unavoidable, making children vulnerable to programming designed explicitly for adult viewers.
Cranmer claimed that this was done as a ploy to entice viewers to subscribe while subjecting all viewers to the adult content, including children. He also based his objections on an existing borough ordnance that prohibited the sale of sexually explicit magazines, videos, or performances.
Brentwood borough and TCI eventually came to an out-of-court agreement in which the channels would be further scrambled and blocked entirely upon request of the subscriber. In October of that year Cranmer again gained the national spotlight when Teresa Heinzthe wife of the late Senator John Heinza Republicanand later wife of presidential candidate John Kerrypublicly endorsed Democratic incumbent Senator Harris Woffordwho had been appointed to the seat by Governor Bob Casey following her husband's death.
The same day that her endorsement made the Pennsylvania newspapers Cranmer issued a press release which included a letter from him to Mrs. Heinz who was, at that time, a registered Republicanasking her to change her voter registration to the Democratic Party; he also included a voter registration form.
Cranmer's letter helped him gain notoriety, as it was seen as emblematic of the betrayal felt by State Republicans. Gammage was the cousin of Ray Sealsa player for the Pittsburgh Steelers football team. The controversy surrounding the death made the national news and racial tension rose to a fever pitch in Pittsburgh.
Cranmer, who had been at odds with the Brentwood police as a councilman, denounced the police conduct and when pressured leveled accusations that Brentwood had a history racist incidents. He and his family were castigated by members of the community and contemplated moving but eventually did not.
After several trials and mistrials, all of the police officers were eventually acquitted in the case. Many in the community never forgave Cranmer for his statements. Being a member of the first Republican majority in Allegheny County government since the Great Depression, Cranmer subsequently split with his Republican running mate Larry Dunn over major differences concerning the managing of the county government,     and formed a close governing alliance with Democrat commissioner Mike Dawida.
This initiative was based upon a study set into motion by former county commissioners Tom Foerster and Pete Flaherty in Their report laid the plan for a completely new organizational structure of county government.
The vacant and deteriorating structure was converted to house the new combined home of the juvenile and adult family sections of Allegheny County Common Pleas Court. It is a meeting of such focused minds and willing spirits that stands to take Pittsburgh into a new era.
