Herbert Kohl


American politician. A Democrat, Kohl was first elected to the Senate in 1988; he was re-elected in 1994 and 2000 and is a recognized leader in Congress for his work toward balancing the federal budget as well as for his strong stand on anti-crime legislation.

Born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Kohl earned his Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1956, and went on to get his Masters in Business Administration at Harvard in 1958. He served in the U.S. Army Reserve from 1958 to 1964, and was president of the family-owned business, Kohl’s grocery and department stores, from 1970 until the corporation was sold in 1979. In 1985, he bought the Milwaukee Bucks basketball team in order to make sure they stayed in Milwaukee.

Senator Kohl has received honors from many organizations such as Taxpayers for Common Sense, and is active in Wisconsin charities. Considered to be the father of the Open School Movement of the ’60s and ’70s, he established the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation Achievement Award Program in 1990, and in 1995, he donated $25 million to the University of Wisconsin for a new sports arena. He is the author of various essays and books, such as "I Won’t Learn From You," which outline his philosophy about teaching and the student-teacher relationship.

Kohl is single and of the Jewish faith.
