Aiken replies to Paul S. Jacobsen of the Department of Political Science, Colgate University, who has evidently asked to meet with him. "Inasmuch as I have accepted numerous speaking dates this fall, I do not expect to be in Washington much of the time after the Senate adjourns.." He adds that his staff will be glad to talk with Jacobsen.
George David Aiken [1892-1984] was an American farmer and Republican politician. He was the 64th Governor of Vermont [1937-1941] before serving in the Senate from 1941 to 1975. As governor, he had fought the New Deal over its programs for hydroelectric power and flood control in Vermont. Though a liberal northeastern Republican in Vermont's progressive tradition, he distrusted any increase in presidential power. In the Senate, he was one of four Republican cosponsors of the Full Employment Act of 1946. He also sponsored the food allotment bill of 1945, which was a forerunner of the food stamp program. In 1950, he was one of seven Senate Republicans who condemned in writing the tactics of Senator Joseph McCarthy. Very good .
