J. L. Bell

At least for the Massacre orations (1771-1783), Boston chose a different gentleman each year. They tended to be lawyers and politicians, though Dr. Benjamin Church, Jr., was known for his verse.

I haven't paid enough attention to the current proposal for a city poet laureate to know if it's a long-term or lifetime appointment (as in Britain) or a one-year honor (as in the USA).
