Photographs from the Life and Career of Howard Baker
Howard Baker, Jr., was a U.S. Senator from East Tennessee. Perhaps more than any other United States senator, he is known for his civility and non-partisanship in American politics. A Republican, Baker rose to national fame by investigating Richard Nixon during the televised Watergate hearings. He went on to become minority and majority leader of the Senate and one of Ronald Reagan's chiefs of staff. This collection of photographs from the Howard Baker, Jr., collections at UT Libraries' Modern Political Archives illustrate some of the relationships and events of Howard Baker's remarkable public life.
