WAGON MASTER OF THE NEW FRONTIER

Commemorating Senator Robert S. Kerr

 

Few men know the trails better or can smell a water hole or ambush faster. Few can get more out of one bull whip or pack more pork into one wagon or shoot faster from the hip...than Robert Samuel Kerr, the rough, tough son of Oklahoma pioneers.

Kerr was born in a log cabin [on September 11, 1896]. He has climbed farther from such humble real estate than any member of Congress since Lincoln.... He is today one of the most powerful members of the Senate and some even call him its uncrowned king.

—Saul Pett, Associated Press, 1962
