The pub­lic life and ca­reer of George McGov­ern, who died on Sunday, stretches back dec­ades. From bomber pi­lot in World War II and later a mem­ber of the House of Rep­res­ent­at­ives to a pres­id­en­tial can­did­ate and long­time sen­at­or, McGov­ern was at the fore­front of Amer­ic­an polit­ics and his­tory. Be­low are high­lights from his life and ca­reer.
