Senator Byrd Celebrates 20,774 Days in Congress




Today Senator Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia becomes the longest serving member of Congress in our nation's history.  With his combined 6 years in the House of Represenatives and his unprecedented 9 consecutive terms in the Senate, he now totals over 56 years of service.  

When he first came to Washington as a young Congressman from his home state (Jan. 3, 1953) Harry Truman was president and most Americans still looked to newspapers and the radio for their daily news.  

I had the great fortune and priviledge of painting his portrait for the U.S. Senate.  He is an amzaing man of dignity and charm and one of the most powerful intellects I have ever had the chance to encounter.
