In 1938, a young country lawyer, Carl T. Curtis won the seat in the House of Representatives of Nebraska’s Fourth Congressional District. He joined in Washington the Republic opposition, outnumbered three to one by New Deal Democrats. Curtis then had three principal objectives: to resist the enlarging of FDR’s New Deal; to work for flood control and irrigation in Nebraska; to help keep the United States out of war. Such was his first step toward four decades in the Congress of the United States–usually in the minority there, and always against the tide.
