He was an Oregon Governor, State lawmaker and the longest term U.S. senator in Oregon's history. Senator Mark Hatfield died yesterday at a Portland residence; he was 89. He was known for his anti-war views, and sometimes was at odds with Republican colleagues. As Chairman and later ranking Republican on the Senate Appropriations Committee, Hatfield steered millions of dollars to public works projects in Oregon. They ranged from national scenic areas and hydropower dams to the state university system and the marine science center that bears his name in Newport, Oregon. And once said that: “Every President other than Eisenhower has been seduced by the military concept that that is our sole measurement of our national security and the more bombs we build, the more secure we are.” Hatfield said: “We are vulnerable in many ways we are not addressing; the needs of education, the needs of housing, the needs of nutrition, the needs of health, the needs of infrastructure."
