Senator George Aiken, Putney, Vermont, 1956

PC044.TMP.074 (RS81153)

Description

George Aiken (1892-1984) was a U.S. senator for 34 years (1941-1975). Even so, he was fondly called Governor Aiken throughout his years in Washington, a carryover from his term as the Governor of Vermont (1937-1941). Aiken was a dedicated environmentalist. In 1984, Vermont designated a 5,000-acre park in the southern part of the state as the George D. Aiken Wilderness. In this photograph, he stands in a field with Vermont farm buildings behind him.
