Birch Bayh: American Senator
April 28, 2022
Birch Bayh was a man of civility and optimism who worked in the “Golden Age” of the U.S. Senate, an era of bipartisanship and progress. From the fall of Kennedy’s Camelot, through the war in Vietnam, to the Civil Rights and Women’s movements, Bayh created some of the most influential legislation in American history in a time that called for bold action.
