The Man in the Arena - The Life and Times of U.S. Senator Gale McGee with author Rodger McDaniel

09-05-2019

There was a time when Wyoming was as likely to elect a liberal Democrat to Congress as they were a conservative Republican. Gale McGee (1915–92) was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1958, at the height of American liberalism. He typified what Teddy Roosevelt called “the man in the arena” and was a major player in the development of America’s post–World War II foreign policy and almost every legislative milestone in U.S. history from the 1950s to 1980.
