WARREN EASTMAN HEARNES (1923-2009), a veteran of WWII and a Democrat, was the first man eligible to serve two consecutive terms as Governor of Missouri (1965-1973). He was previously a member of the Missouri State House of Representatives (1950-1961) and the Missouri State Senate (1961-1965). An unsuccessful candidate for the U.S. Senate in 1976, Hearnes became a Judge on Missouri's circuit court in 1980, making him the first man in Missouri's history to serve in all three branches of state government. Hearnes' wife, Betty C. Hearnes, a former member of Missouri's House of Representatives, was the Democratic nominee for the state's governorship in 1988. WARREN PERLEY KNOWLES (1908-1993), a World War II Navy veteran and lawyer, was Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin(1955-1959, 1961-1963) and the 37th Governor of Wisconsin (1965-1971). DANIEL KILLIAN MOORE (1906-1986) was the 66th Governor of the state of North Carolina. After serving in the Army during World War II, Moore worked as a North Carolina Superior Court judge from 1948 to 1958. He was appointed Governor in 1964. Later, after serving one term as governor (North Carolina governors were not then eligible to be re-elected), Moore's successor, Governor Robert W. Scott, appointed him to the North Carolina Supreme Court, the first governor of North Carolina to be so honored. He served on the Court from November 20, 1969 until December 31, 1978. HULETT CARLSON SMITH (b. 1918), the son of U.S. Congressman Joseph Luther Smith (1880-1962), was the Democratic Governor of West Virginia from 1965-1969. A veteran of WWII and a businessman, Smith had previously served for twelve years on the state's aeronautics agency, and he chaired the state Democratic Executive Committee from 1956-1961. After leaving office, Smith returned to his insurance agency and served as Secretary-Treasurer for two hospitals. CALVIN L. RAMPTON (1913-2007) was the 11th Governor of Utah from 1965-1977, making him the only governor from the state to serve three consecutive terms.
