US Senator. He served as United States Senator from Colorado from 1941 to 1957. He graduated from the law school of the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1913 and was admitted to the bar the same year and commenced practice in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was executive secretary to the Governor of Colorado from 1915 to 1917 and then, during the First World War, enlisted as a Private in the Colorado National Guard in 1917. He saw action in France and was mustered out as a lieutenant colonel after which he resumed the practice of law in Denver, Colo. Subsequently he became president of Kinney-Coastal Oil Company, and later was appointed and subsequently elected as a Republican to the United States Senate to fill the vacancy in the term ending January 3, 1945, caused by the death of Senator Alva B. Adams. He was reelected in 1944 and again in 1950 and served from December 20, 1941, to January 3, 1957. He was not a candidate for renomination in 1956. The town of Millikin, Colorado is named after him. (bio by: Fred Beisser)
