Adolph Joachim "A.J." Sabath
Birth: Apr. 4, 1866, Slovakia
Death: Nov. 6, 1952
Bethesda
Montgomery County
Maryland, USA

US Congressman. A Jewish immigrant from Bohemia, he immigrated to the United States at age 15. After working his way through law school, he held several City of Chicago local offices and became active in state and national Democratic party. Sabath was elected to Congress from the Jewish West Side in 1907. He represented Illinois' 5th and 7th Districts, serving until his death in 1952 at the age of 86. He was a leading opponent of prohibition in the 1920's, a strong supporter of the New Deal, and an interventionist who strongly supported war against Germany. A family friend, he was responsible for future four-star admiral Hyman G. Rickover being nominated for appointment to the United States Naval Academy. Sabath was elected to a total of twenty-three consecutive terms, the second-longest continuous service of any congressman.
