Evelle J. Younger was born in Stamford, Nebraska, on June 19th, 1918. He served as a judge in Los Angeles and was elected as the state Attorney General in 1970. He oversaw the prosecutions of Charles Manson and Sirhan Sirhan, the Robert Kennedy assassin. “Under the Younger administration, environmental protection and preservation assumed new importance when the state lawmakers passed CEQA; consequently, the Attorney General was now responsible to protect California from pollution, impairment, or destruction.” Under the Republican party, he campaigned for Governor of California but lost to Jerry Brown.
