US Congressman. Known as "The Little Giant from Little Dixie", he was elected as a Democrat to represent Oklahoma's 3rd District in the United States House of Representatives, serving from 1947 to 1977, a span of thirty years. He succeeded Massachusetts Congressman John William McCormack as Speaker of the House in 1971, serving in that office until his retirement from politics in 1976. Twice he became next in line to assume the presidency - first when Vice-President Spiro T. Agnew resigned in 1973, and again in 1974 when President Richard M. Nixon resigned and Gerald Ford became President.
