Charles Linza McNary was born on a farm near Salem, Oregon on June 12, 1874 and attended Oregon public schools and Leland Stanford Junior University. He graduated from Stanford University and returned to Salem to begin a law career. McNary served as a deputy district attorney from 1906 to 1913, as dean of the Willamette University Law School from 1908 to 1913, and as an Oregon Supreme Court associate justice from 1913 to 1915.

Following the death of Harry Lane in 1917, McNary was appointed as a Republican to the U.S. Senate. McNary advocated for farm and reclamation legislation including the McNary-Haugen farm bill of 1927. He served as minority leader from 1933 to 1944 and supported a much of the New Deal legislation, although he opposed the reciprocal trade agreements and President Roosevelt's proposals for Supreme Court reform. McNary served on the Committee on Irrigation and Reclamation of Arid Lands and the Committee on Agriculture and Forestry. In 1933, McNary was the original and principal sponsor of the Bonneville Dam. He ran unsuccessfully for vice president with Wendell Wilkie in 1940 against the Roosevelt ticket.

McNary died in office in 1944. He was later honored when McNary Dam on the Columbia River and McNary High School in Keizer were named for him.
