MILLARD EVELYN TYDINGS (1890-1961), a Maryland state legislator and veteran of World War I, was speaker of the Maryland House (1920-1922) and a Democratic US Representative (1923-1927) and Senator (1927-1951). In 1950 Tydings chaired a subcommittee investigating Senator Joseph McCarthy's claims of communist spies in the State Department. The committee report was sharply critical of McCarthy, whose supporters ran attack ads against Tydings during the 1950 election, implying that the Maryland Senator was himself sympathetic to communism. Tydings lost his seat. His son, Joseph Tydings, was a US Senator for one term (1965-1971).
