Mr. Bryan was an American orator and politician from Nebraska, and a dominant force in the populist wing of the Democratic Party,
standing three times as the Party's nominee for President of the United
States (1896, 1900, and 1908). He served two terms as a member of the United States Representative from Nebraska and was United States Senate under President Woodrow Wilson (1913–1915).
