   Honoring former Congressman Dalip Singh Saund and remembering his 
     achievements as the only Indian American to serve in Congress.

Whereas Dalip Singh Saund was born on September 20, 1899, in Punjab, India;
Whereas Saund attended the University of California at Berkeley and received a 
        M.A. in 1922 and a Ph.D. in 1924;
Whereas due to prejudice against Asians Saund's first job was as a foreman of a 
        cotton-picking ranch, despite his advanced education;
Whereas Saund became a naturalized United States citizen on December 16, 1949;
Whereas Saund ran for and won the position of judge in 1952, and served in that 
        capacity for four years;
Whereas Saund was elected to the House of Representatives in 1956 from the 29th 
        congressional district of California, representing Riverside and 
        Imperial Counties;
Whereas Saund served in the House of Representatives for three consecutive 
        terms;
Whereas Saund passed many diverse pieces of legislation during his distinguished 
        career in the House of Representatives, supporting agriculture in his 
        congressional district, the rights of Native Americans, and Mexican 
        immigrants;
Whereas Saund was one of the leaders in the fight for equality, and he worked to 
        draft an amendment to the Constitution relative to equal rights of men 
        and women;
Whereas Saund was the first Asian American to be elected as a full-voting Member 
        of Congress and the only Indian American ever to be elected to Congress;
Whereas Saund was a role model and a mentor for many Asian and Indian Americans; 
        and
Whereas Dalip Singh Saund passed away in Hollywood, California on April 22, 
        1973: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That Congress--
            (1) honors the life and dedicated service of former 
        Congressman Dalip Singh Saund; and
            (2) remembers his achievements as the only Indian American 
        to serve in Congress.
