David Durenberger

Biography

American lawyer and politician, the Senator and representative of MN. He served 16 years in the Senate, from 1978 to his retirement at the end of 1994.

Graduating from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1959, he was admitted to the Minnesota bar and commenced practice in St. Paul. He served in the United States Army 1956-1963 and was elected as a Republican to the United States Senate on 11/07/1978, to complete the unexpired term of Hubert H. Humphrey. He became a recognized public speaker, expert on national health policy and author of a book on health reform, "Prescription for Change."

Durenberger and his Senate staff took up the case of Rebecca Hansen in 1993-1994. They probed whether Hansen's washout from helicopter flight training school was in retaliation for her having earlier charged sexual

harassment by an instructor. To pressure the Navy for information, Durenberger placed a hold on the nomination of Admiral Stanley Arthur, a highly esteemed officer who was being promoted to the Pacific command. He was denounced by the Senate in 1990 for unethical conduct in his investigation.

He is a Roman Catholic; married with four kids.
