Birch Bayh: Making a Difference

Birch Bayh: Making a Difference

Cover: Birch Bayh by Robert Blaemire
Main Library
Lifelong Learning Center
Thursday, November 14 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm
Born in Terre Haute, Birch Evans Bayh (January 22, 1928 - March 14, 2019) served as a member of the Indiana House of Representatives from 1954 to 1962 before being elected to the US Senate. He was influential in several pieces of significant legislation during his 25 year tenure as a US Senator (1963-1981), but he was best known for his passionate support of the Equal Rights Amendment. Bayh would later be dubbed "The Father of Title IX" for his landmark addition to the Higher Education Act of 1965. This piece of legislation banned gender discrimination in institutes of higher education and granted women equal opportunities in both public education and in the realm of sports. Bayh is further noted to be the only person since the Founding Fathers to have authored more than one constitutional amendment. In 1963, he introduced the 25th Amendment, which created a process for the transition of presidential power in case of death, disability, or resignation. Bayh also worked on the 26th Amendment in 1971; this amendment lowered the voting age to 18 in all federal, state, and local elections. Bayh's biographer, Robert Blaemire, will discuss the recently published book Birch Bayh: Making a Difference, which covers Bayh's prolific career and contributions, which continue to shape today's political landscape. Copies of the book will be available for purchase. Fred J. Nation, a lifelong resident of Terre Haute, will join Robert Blaemire at this event to discuss the Bayhs connection to Terre Haute and how they impacted local politics. As press secretary for both Senator Birch Bayh (1979-1980) and Governor Evan Bayh (1989-1996), Nation had a close personal and professional relationship with the Bayhs.
