Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Clarence C. Dill won election in 1914 as a U.S. Representative from Spokane, Washington, despite being a political newcomer and a Democrat in a Republican stronghold. He led Congress in drafting the Radio Act of 1927 and the Federal Communications Act of 1934. Dill also effectively lobbied FDR to authorize Grand Coulee Dam. In 1934, at the height of his prestige, he mysteriously retired. This first-ever biography reveals Dill's place as one of the Northwest's most influential political leaders.
