Hide Profile

Gary Warren Hart was born November 28, 1936 in Ottawa, Kansas. In 1958, he graduated from Bethany Nazarene College in Oklahoma. Hart earned degrees from the Yale Divinity School in 1961 and the Yale Law School in 1964. He first came to Colorado in 1943 and, in the summers from 1954 1962, he worked on the Santa Fe and Colorado & Southern Railroads. He moved to Colorado in 1965 and started to practice law in Denver in 1967, focusing on natural resource and environmental law. Gary Hart's public service began when he volunteered in the campaign of President John F. Kennedy. He spent 1964-1966 in Washington, D.C. as an attorney in the Justice Department and as Special Assistant to Secretary Stewart Udall at the Interior Department. In 1968 he worked as a volunteer for Robert Kennedy's presidential campaign in Colorado. As a Denver resident Hart served on the Board of Commissioners of the Denver Urban Renewal Authority, he lectured on natural resources law at the University of Colorado School of Law at Boulder. Hart entered politics in his own right in 1974 and, aided by the awakening of environmental ethics and the changing demographics of the Colorado electorate, he was elected to the U.S. Senate from Colorado. He retired from the Senate at the end of the 99th Congress in 1986. Hart entered the race as democratic candidate for the presidency in Denver on April 13, 1987. His campaign, however, ended unexpectedly and prematurely amidst allegations of sexual improprieties. He withdrew his candidacy on May 15, 1987.
