Born in 1928, Birch Bayh was an Indiana senator from 1963 to 1981 before running for President of the United States. Bayh had intended to run in 1972 but dropped out of the race due to his wife’s cancer diagnosis. Bayh was unsuccessful in both attempts to win the candidacy, eventually losing his Senate seat in 1980.
