Tom Connally

Thomas Terry Connally (born August 19 1877 near Hewitt, McLennan County, Texas; died October 28 1963 in Washington, DC) was an American politician, who represented Texas in both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives, as a member of the Democratic Party.

As Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, he was instrumental in the ratification of the treaty creating the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. He was also a member and vice-chairman to the United Nations Conference on International Organization in 1945 that chartered the United Nations.

Connally was a widower when he married Lucille Sanderson, who was the widow of the other Texas senator, Morris Sheppard [http://www.senate.gov/artandhistory/history/common/briefing/Senate_Spouses.htm] . Connally was the step-grandfather of Lucille's grandson, Connie Mack III, U.S. Senator from Florida, and the step-great-grandfather of Mack's son, Connie Mack IV, U.S. Representative from Florida.
