Warren G. Magnuson served as U.S. senator from the state of Washington for six terms. The sheer sweep of his accomplishments is astonishing: authoring the 1964 Civil Rights Act, protecting Puget Sound, saving Boeing for Seattle, championing consumer protection legislation, reorganizing the railroads, and godfathering the electrification of the Pacific Northwest by pressing for Columbia and Snake River dams. He pushed for federal aid to education, kept Pentagon budgets down, and established the National Institutes of Health while arguing throughout the McCarthy era against U.S. isolation from China. He was also a whiskey-and-poker companion to Presidents Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, and Johnson.

Book Description University of Washington Press. Paperback. Condition: New. 403 pages. Warren G. Magnuson served as U. S. senator from the state of Washington for six terms. The sheer sweep of his accomplishments is astonishing: authoring the Civil Rights Act, protecting Puget Sound, saving Boeing for Seattle, championing consumer protection legislation, reorganizing the railroads, and godfathering the electrification of teh Pacific Northwest by pressing for Columbia and Snake River dams. He pushed federal aid to education, which holding down Pentagon budgets, and established the National Institues of Health (and kept research funds flowing liberally) while arguing throughout the McCarthy era against U. S. isolation from China. He did much more. But he was also a boon whiskey-and-poker companion to Presidents Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, and Johnson. Shelby Scates traces Magnusons life from his early years in the FargoMoorhead region of the upper Midwest to his death in Seattle in 1989 at age eighty-four. During a political career that spanned five decades, he was a member of the Washington State Legislature, a King County prosecutor, a U. S. congressman from 1936 to 1944, and a member of the Senate from 1944 to 1981. Senator Eugene McCarthy described Magnuson as the most loved member of the U. S. Senate, and this book reveals him at work there: a man not seeking the spotlight, not aspiring to be president, but enjoying what he called the kitchenwork of legislation done in the committee rooms, workrooms, and corridors of Congress; a man who would say, Forget the grudge. Forgive, and be the best example of that advice. He avoided pointless confrontations, made friends in both major political parties and kept them, and had near flawless timing about when to make a political move. Magnuson created legislation that helped define twentieth-century America by increasing civil rights, mandating corporate accountability, and funding medical research. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9780295995342
