NKY History Hour: Sixty-Six Senators Who Served KentuckyScreen Shot 2021 01 12 at 1.19.27 PM

Wednesday, January 20, 6:30 p.m.

One was a general, another a doctor. One ran for president of the United States; two were elected U.S. vice- presidents. One was a member of the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame; another resigned to become major league baseball's commissioner.

All of these had one thing in common. Each represented the Commonwealth of Kentucky in the U.S. Senate.

Paul L Whalen, author of "Profiles of Kentucky's United State Senators," will discuss the 66 men who served in Kentucky's two Senate seats from the beginning of statehood to the present during Behringer-Crawford Museum's virtual "NKY History Hour" from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 20.

In addition to famous politicians such as Henry Clay, Happy Chandler and Mitch McConnell, Whalen's book also profiles lesser-known statesmen who also played significant roles in shaping Kentucky's political profile. Whalen, a resident of Fort Thomas, KY, is an attorney and is past chair of the KY Conference of the United Methodist Church Commission on Archives and History.
