1960s / Senator Dirksen - Gallant Men
Now for something a little bit different: One of the most recognizable senators of the 1950s and 1960s was Everett Dirksen of Illinois. His disheveled appearance belied a quick mind and masterful debating skills. Dirksen was so well known that he was a mystery guest on What's My Line? in 1967 and a special guest on Red Skelton's variety show. Although he was staunchly conservative, Dirksen was one of the senators most responsible for drafting civil rights legislation. In 1966 Dirksen recorded Gallant Men which cracked the Billboard top 40.
