Eugene McCarthy

Eugene Joseph McCarthy (born March 29, 1916) was a congressman for Minnesota's Fourth District from 1949 to 1959 and a United States Senator for Minnesota from 1959 to 1971, where he served as a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee[?]. His unsuccessful bid for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1968 focused on ending the United States' involvement in the Vietnam War. After leaving the Senate, McCarthy became a senior editor at Simon and Schuster publishing[?] and a syndicated newspaper columnist. He is also a published poet.

Note: Senator Eugene McCarthy is not to be confused with the anti-communist demagogue Senator Joseph McCarthy.
