By his twentieth birthday he was totally blind. Despite his handicap, he excelled in school, showing a special aptitude for debate and oratory. He was many years a Senator from Oklahoma. Although he was in support of Franklin D. Roosevelt, he opposed the New Deal. He came in last in the bid for Senator in 1936 which basically ended his political career. (Handbook of TX Online)
