General Articles The Presidents GME Contents WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN
A U.S. congressman, three-time DEMOCRATIC presidential nominee, and secretary of state, William Jennings Bryan was a major force in American politics for three decades. Bryan was born on Mar. 19, 1860, in Salem, Ill. He attended college, studied law, and entered legal practice in Illinois before moving to Lincoln, Nebr., in 1887. Elected to CONGRESS in 1890 and reelected in 1892, he argued for inflationary policies, including free silver, and fought a losing battle against repeal (1893) of the Sherman Silver Purchase Act. Failing in a bid for a U.S. SENATE seat in 1894, Bryan became editor of the Omaha World-Herald. He was out of public office in 1895 and 1896, but he reached a wide audience as a speaker at political gatherings and Chautauqua meetings. By 1896 his party was bitterly divided between gold Democrats, led by Grover CLEVELAND , and free-silver advocates. The silverites controlled the party's 1896 convention, and Bryan, confirming his position as free silver's champion through his dramatic "Cross of Gold" speech, was nominated for president. He conducted an active campaign and received many more votes in losing than Cleveland had in winning in 1892. When nominated for PRESIDENT again in 1900, Bryan insisted on a platform endorsing free silver but emphasized imperialism as a more important issue. He attacked the administration of incumbent William

William Jennings Bryan (1860-1925) was a Congressman from Nebraska, three-time presidential candidate (1896, 1900, and 1908), and later Secretary of State under President Woodrow Wilson.
In 1896, Bryan faced an uphill battle as the Democratic and Populist nominee. Democrats had held the White House for the previous four years and were widely blamed for the severe economic depression of 1893. Furthermore, sitting President Grover Cleveland disapproved of Bryan's nomination; many Democrats abandoned the party to form the Gold Democrats , or to vote for McKinley . Bryanwho barely acknowledged his nomination by the Populistsdecided the best strategy for Democratic victory was to bring his message to the people by speaking around the country, often from the backs of railroad cars. This was a new tactic, since presidential candidates traditionally stayed home and let others speak on their behalf. It won Bryan both criticism and fame.

Although he was born in Salem, Illinois, Bryan made his career in Nebraska politics. He won a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1890. A tireless defender of the small farmer and laborer, Bryan worked closely with the Populist Party, a group of poor Midwestern and Southern farmers who suffered economically due to low prices for their crops, which they blamed on Northeastern business interests. Bryan's efforts on behalf of farmers and laborers (the so-called "common" people) earned him the title the "Great Commoner."

William Jennings Bryan March 19, 1860-July, 1925 William Jennings Bryan was defeated three times for the presidency of the United States, but retained a hold on public opinion that would be the envy of presidents. For years he led the Democratic party towards social reformism and secured its 1912 nomination of Woodrow Wilson. Born in Salem, Illinois, Bryan graduated in 1881 from Illinois College in Jacksonville and got a law degree in 1883 from the Union College of Law in Chicago. In 1887 he moved to Nebraska, and in 1890 he was the second Democrat elected to Congress from his state. Reelected in 1892 with the support of the People's Party , but declined to run for reelection in 1894 and sought election by the state legislature to the U. S. Senate. In the course of this, he stumped the state for free coinage of silver and for tariff reform and an income tax, attaining a modest national reputation. At the age of thirty-six, Bryan won the Democratic nomination for president with his dramatic Cross of Gold speech , calling for free and unlimited coinage of silver. The apparent Democratic embrace of a modest reform agenda severely undercut and ultimately destroyed the People's Party . Afterwards, when Bryan was crushed in the 1896 elections, the conservative wing of the Democratic party again resumed its dominance.

William Jennings Bryan
"Free coinage means constant prosperity, employment and higher wages and goverment of the people, and for the people, and not of Hanna, for the trusts, and by the plutacrats."
William Jennings Bryan, the Democratic candidate for President of the United States, was born in Salem, Marion County, Ill., May 19, 1860. "My early life ran quiet as a brook," he remarked to the writer. "And although I was fond of books I also delighted in outdoor sports. The pleasantest memory of my boyhood is that of my mother, who taught me until I was ten years of age." Mr. Bryan attended the public schools until he was fifteen years old when he entered Whipple Academy, at that time the preparatory department of Illinois College, located at Jacksonville. In 1877 he entered the college proper, took the classical course, and graduated in 1881 as valedictorian and class orator. Although a profound student, he yet manifested a tendency for athletic sports. His favorite exercise was jumping, and his record for the standing or broad jump was twelve feet and four inches. In 1881 he entered the Union College of Law in Chicago, from which he was graduated in 1883. He was admitted to the bar in 1883, and began the practice of his profession at Jacksonville, Ill., where he remained for four years. He then removed to Lincoln, Neb., where he formed a partnership with A. R. Talbot, a former classmate.

William Jennings Bryan
William Jennings Bryan was born in Salem, Illinois. He was educated at Illinois College in Jacksonville and Union Law School in Chicago. Bryan practiced law in Jacksonville for several years, but in 1887 moved to Lincoln, Nebraska where he hoped to launch a political career. Bryan was elected to Congress twice, 1890 and 1892. His influence grew rapidly, due largely to his strong advocacy of free silver , opposition to high protective tariffs and oratorical skills. In 1894, Bryan worked to unite the Democrats and Populists in Nebraska, but later lost a bid for a Senate seat. Out of politics, Bryan became the editor of the Omaha World-Herald and traveled widely as a lecturer on the Chautauqua circuit. Popular perception notwithstanding, Bryan's nomination at the Democratic convention in was not a spontaneous event fueled by his " cross of gold " speech. The gathering was electrified by his performance, but Bryan's handlers had long been at work securing votes from the delegates. His advocacy of free silver later brought him the Populist Party's nomination. During the campaign, Bryan became the first candidate to unabashedly seek voter support. He traveled thousands of miles by train and delivered hundreds of speeches, stopping even in the smallest of towns. His oratorical prowess earned him the nickname "boy orator of the Platte," but his detractors liked to point out that the Platte River was only six inches deep and a mile wide at the mouth.

William Jennings Bryan
By John Eichlin GENERAL: Bryan was an important political figure of the era who was many times considered the cornerstone of the Democratic Party. He became very involved in the issues surrounding the Spanish-American War, even joining the general militia. He is many times criticized for both his views and actions duringthis time. BIOGRAPHY: William Jennings Bryan was born on March 19, 1860 in Salem, Illinois. His parents, Silas and Mariah, were a very religious couple who suffered a great deal over the premature death of two of William's three older siblings. The childhood atmosphere in which he grew up was very religiously and politically oriented. After graduating from Illinois College and Union College of Law, Bryan followed in his father's footsteps by combining the closely related professions of law and politics. He soon became renowned as an excellent orator and took full advantage of this gift. Bryan's great rise into politics came through his ardent support of bimetallism, which earned him the support of both the Democratic Party and the rural Populist Party. A chief figure among Democrats, he unsuccessfully ran for government positions several times. Generally, as a politician, he considered himself the voice of the common person and a great advocate of individualism. With the advent of the controversy in Cuba, Bryan remained unusually uninvolved and continued the remain focused upon the issues of silver currency. As the political currents of his contemporaries shifted in favor of a conflict with Spain, he began to ardently campaign for Cuban independence. He argued that America was responsible for spreading the virtues of democracy to such a close neighbor. Waving a small Cuban flag in one hand and a small American one in the other, he excited large crowds in favor of his optimistic ideals.

A US Congressman, three-time Democratic presidential nominee (1896, 1900, 1908), and secretary of state,William Jennings Bryan ¨ Bryan was the editor-in-chief of the Omaha World-Herald and founded and edited the Commoner, an influential weekly 16-page newspaper, in Lincoln, Nebraska. It ran for twenty-three years and circulated amongst 140,000 people. He also wrote many books and produced a number of pamphlets regarding different issues. He would express all of his views in that paper no matter what they were. His public speaking was his best form of commentary. Nicknamed the "silver tongue orator," he spoke all over the country many times a day. He had many witty remarks, memorable phrases, serious topics, and clear explanations that made him a brilliant speaker. Bryan was even invited to many college functions (like Princeton and Harvard) to be the primary speaker because of his tremendous following.
¨ Bryan's Chautauqua lectures were speeches where he openly denounced and criticized many government plans and decisions. These lectures were attended by masses of adults and children in the surrounding area to listen to a famous orator teach the people about their government and its current problems. Bryan's most widely Chautauqua lecture attacked both parties for adopting meaningless planks on profiteering and for making the League a partisan issue. He announced his utter disappointment in the platforms and reforms each candidate adopted because the people had to vote for them. He learned though that the people informed themselves of the real issues and cast their influence on the right side. He criticized politicians in every way possible and wished he was discussing the art of religion instead. Bryan did establish his interest in religion rather than politics. He said he would still be in a church praying even after his political career is over.

William Jennings Bryan: American Protest Over the Sinking of the Lusitania Please call on the minister of foreign affairs and, after reading to him this communication, leave him with a copy. In view of recent acts of the German authorities in violation of American rights on the high seas which culminated in the torpedoing and sinking of the British steamship Lusitania on May 7, 1915, by which over 100 American citizens lost their lives, it is clearly wise and desirable that the government of the United States and the Imperial German government should come to a clear and full understanding as to the grave situation which has resulted. The sinking of the British passenger steamer Falaba by a German submarine on March 28, through which Leon C. Thrasher, an American citizen, was drowned; the attack on April 28 on the American vessel Cushing by a German aeroplane; the torpedoing on May 1 of the American vessel Gulflight by a German submarine, as a result of which two or more American citizens met their death; and, finally, the torpedoing and sinking of the steamship Lusitania constitute a series of events which the government of the United States has observed with growing concern, distress, and amazement.

William Jennings Bryan on Imperialism
By Jim Zwick
Photograph of William Jennings Bryan
A lthough often described by scholars focusing on presidential politics as the champion of the anti-imperialist cause, William Jennings Bryan (1860-1925) had an uneasy relationship with the organized anti-imperialist movement. Unlike many other Democratic politicians, he never joined the Anti-Imperialist League. In 1898 and 1899, while the League was organizing opposition to ratification of the Treaty of Paris, Bryan supported ratification. The National Liberty Congress of Anti-Imperialists held by the League in August 1900 urged support for Bryan during the presidential campaign that year but his position on the Treaty of Paris, his financial policies, and his relationships with racist Southern Democrats alienated many anti-imperialists. Thomas Mott Osborne , Oswald Garrison Villard, John Jay Chapman and others tried to organize a third party opposed to both William McKinley's imperialism and Bryan's free-silver financial policy. Unable to recruit a prominent anti-imperialist Republican to head the ticket and failing to gain support from the Anti-Imperialist League, that movement collapsed. Many other anti-imperialists voted for McKinley in 1900, though, as the League was unable to make imperialism the "paramount issue" of the campaign while Bryan was the Democratic presidential candidate. Bryan remained a controversial figure, but the Democratic Party consistently supported Philippine independence in its campaign platforms and the Anti-Imperialist League endorsed the party in every presidential campaign from 1900 to 1920.
