"Three Score Years and Ten": Selections from the Autobiography of William J. Bulow, Sr.

Shortly after his defeat in the 1942 South Dakota Democratic primaries, William J. Bulow sat down to write his life story. In his unpublished autobiography, Bulow reflects on major changes in the United States since his birth, his life in South Dakota, his political ideology, and his problems with President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his policies. Having served the state of South Dakota for next fifteen years as its governor and then as one of its United States senators, Bulow reflects the major political battles of the middle twentieth century.
