Georgia Newspaper Recognizes Arizona Mormon Political Heritage

BAINBRIDGE, GEORGIA -- As part of a series of articles on Arizona in the Bainbridge Post-Searchlight, the newspaper looked at the most prominent politicians in the state, including Mormons Stewart Udall and Morris "Mo" Udall. The descendants of early stake president and polygamist David King Udall, the Udall brothers were both elected to the U.S. Congress, starting with Stewart's election in 1954, and stretching untill Morris retired in 1991. Stewart was also Secretary of the Interior under President's John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson, and was active in pursuing environmental issues after leaving the government in 1969. "Mo" Udall played professional basketball, served as a lawyer and founded the bank of Tucson before serving in congress, and sought the Democratic Party's nomination for president in 1976, losing to Jimmy Carter. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1996.
