I had thought that there weren’t any Ephs currently serving in Congress, but I was wrong. [Again? — ed Give me a break. I was out partying with Jim Shepard last night!] Congressman Mark Udall, D-Colo, is class of 1972. Udall

is no stranger to the world of public service, having come from a family where devotion to service is both a goal and a reality. His father, Morris “Mo” Udall, served in the U.S. House of Representatives for 30 years and ran for the Democratic nomination for president in 1976. His uncle, Stewart, is widely revered for his accomplishments while serving as secretary of the interior under President Kennedy. Udall worked on his father’s presidential campaign, marking the beginning of his own active involvement in the political process.

Udall is clearly someone that the Political Economy folks should consider visiting during their spring break pilgrimage to Washington.
