Dorn, Watson, and Steve Griffith

Oral History Transcript

The primary focus of this 2006 interview is the 1950 campaign by William Jennings Bryan Dorn to be returned to Congress. Watson Dorn, Bryan Dorn's youngest brother, and cousin Steve Griffith, helped Dorn defeat incumbent James B. Hare and win election to regain the seat he had first won in 1946. In 1948, rather than seek reelection to the House, Dorn had unsuccessfully challenged Burnet Maybank for the U.S. Senate.
