GEORGE MCGOVERN (born in 1922) represented South Dakota in the U.S. House of Representatives (1957-1961) and Senate (1963-1981). He was the Democratic Party's candidate for President in 1972, carrying only Massachusetts and the District of Columbia against President Nixon. Prior the 1972 Democratic Convention, he had headed a special commission that revolutionized the process of delegate selection, increasing the importance of competing for delegates in state primaries. Motivated to run for President by his opposition to the Vietnam War, McGovern has also long been associated with the problem of world hunger. He administered the Food for Peace program for President Kennedy (1961-1962), represented the U.S. at the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (1998-2001) and became the U.N. Global Ambassador on World Hunger in 2001. ELLIS YARNAL BERRY (1902-1999) was a Republican Congressman from South Dakota from 1951-1971.
