“When Bipartisanship Mattered: “The Life and Career of US Senator Clifford P. Case”

For 33 years in the U. S. Congress, nine in the House and twenty-four in the Senate, Clifford Case was a powerful voice for civil and human rights, environmental protection, ethics in government and a global role for the U.S. in combating the spread of communism and promoting democracy. Case was determined to uphold honesty and integrity in government, introducing legislation on financial disclosure years before it was required by law, while pursuing an end to the Vietnam War when it became clear U.S. policy was causing more harm than good. Case also was a forceful advocate for New Jersey, working closely with his senate colleague Harrison Williams and other members of the state’s Congressional delegation to advance the state’s interests in Washington, with particular emphasis on preserving and protecting the natural environment. Learn more about this fascinating figure from his biographer himself.

William R. Fenekes (B. A., M. A., Ed. D., Rutgers University) taught social studies and Spanish from 1974-1987 at Hunterdon Central Regional HS in Flemington NJ, and then served as supervisor of social studies at Hunterdon Central 1987 to his retirement in December 2010. He received his doctorate in social studies education and curriculum in 1985. He is the author of many articles and books, including his comprehensive biography, Clifford P. Case and the Challenge of Liberal Republicanism (Lanham MD: Lexington Books, 2023).
