Langer, William, 1886-1959

American politician

William "Wild Bill" Langer was a prominent American lawyer and politician from North Dakota. Langer is one of the most colorful characters in North Dakota history, most famously bouncing back from a scandal that forced him out of the governor's office and into multiple trials. He served as the 17th and 21st Governor of North Dakota from 1932 to 1934 and from 1937 to 1939. Langer served in the United States Senate from 1941 until his death in office in 1959. As senator he was best known for strongly opposing any American military involvement in world affairs, while his opponents called him an isolationist. (Source: Wikipedia)
