  • Notes 
    • U.S. Senator

      worked as a schoolteacher before entering public service -- first as Smith County Superintendent of Schools, then as Tennessee's very first Secretary of Labor.
      Winning election to the House and then to the United States Senate, Albert Gore, Sr. rose to national prominence as a champion of civil rights -- one of only two southern Senators who refused to sign the Southern Manifesto; the author and sponsor of the bill that lead to the creation of the Interstate Highway system; a leader on tax reform and defense policy; and an outspoken opponent of the Vietnam War. Senator Gore was considered by many to be a new and progressive brand of southern politician, helping to connect the South to the rest of America.
      After leaving the Senate in 1970, Albert Gore Sr. worked as a lawyer and businessman, and tended the Gore family farm in Carthage, Tennessee.
