The Central High School alumnus who served four terms as a United States Senator

Can you identify the alumnus pictured on the left? He was a member of the Madison [Central] High School Class of 1919, where he was a member of the Tychoberahn staff and the dramatics club. He and his future wife, also a member of the Class of 1919, attended the University of Wisconsin, graduating in 1923. In 1944, Oregon voters elected him to the U.S, Senate, where he ultimately served four terms.

If you're not familiar with this distinguished alumnus, you haven't visited the Madison Central High School history blog lately. Maybe you should do so right now. Click HERE for the main post and HERE to see what this dynamic duo looked like when they were high school seniors.
