                                      BIOGRAPHY

               Paul David Wellstone, Minnesota's senior Senator, was 
             born to Russian immigrants Leon and Minnie Wellstone on 
             July 21, 1944, in Washington, DC.
               Paul was raised in Arlington, VA, and attended Wakefield 
             and Yorktown High Schools. An accomplished student and 
             athlete, he went on to the University of North Carolina in 
             Chapel Hill where he was a champion wrestler. In 1965 he 
             earned his B.A., and 4 years later was awarded a Ph.D. in 
             political science. He then accepted a teaching post at 
             Carleton College in Northfield, MN, where he taught for 21 
             years. From 1983 to 1984 he was the director of the 
             Minnesota Community Energy Program.
               In 1990, underdog Senate candidate Paul Wellstone 
             rallied a dynamic volunteer force and traveled throughout 
             Minnesota in his trademark green bus. He was the only 
             Senate challenger that year to unseat an incumbent. U.S. 
             Senator Paul Wellstone's experience as a teacher and 
             community organizer in Minnesota and his work representing 
             Minnesotans in the Senate provided the framework for his 
             progressive priorities and accomplishments.
               During his first Senate term, Senator Wellstone led 
             legislative battles to make health care more accessible 
             and affordable and won workers' protection to take time 
             from work to care for their families without losing their 
             jobs. He helped raise the minimum wage, successfully 
             fought to protect seniors' pension funds from corporate 
             raiders, and authored historic ethics and lobbying reform 
             measures that forever changed how the people's business is 
             done on Capitol Hill. Senator Wellstone expanded health 
             care coverage for those suffering from mental illness, 
             worked with a bipartisan coalition to write a new farm 
             bill, and blocked harsh bankruptcy reforms unfair to 
             consumers as well as efforts to open the Arctic National 
             Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling. He secured Federal 
             resources for Minnesota schools and worked tirelessly on 
             behalf of veterans, passing legislation to aid homeless 
             veterans and securing compensation for ``atomic veterans'' 
             suffering from cancers due to radiation exposure during 
             their military service.
               He was also a leader in efforts to combat violence 
             against women. In 2000, Wellstone joined with Senator Sam 
             Brownback (R-KS) to pass historic bipartisan legislation 
             to prevent international sex trafficking of women and 
             girls, establishing first-ever penalties for those who 
             enslave and traffic in persons.
               Paul Wellstone was one of a kind. He was a man of 
             principle and conviction in a world that has too little of 
             either. He was a passionate visionary who never gave up 
             hope that we could make the world a better place for 
             everyone; a committed fighter for social justice who gave 
             a voice to the voiceless; a man with a huge heart who lit 
             up a room--and the hearts of others when he walked in. He 
             was a man who valued others for who they were not where 
             they came from, or what they wore, or their position or 
             social status. He was dedicated to helping the little guy 
             in a business dominated by the big guys.
               Senator Wellstone's life was tragically cut short when 
             the plane he was traveling in crashed southeast of 
             Eveleth, MN, leaving no survivors. On the plane with him 
             were his wife, Sheila (Ison) Wellstone; daughter, Marcia 
             Wellstone; campaign staff Will McLaughlin, Tom Lapic, and 
             Mary McEvoy; and Captains Richard Conry and Michael Guess.
               Paul and Sheila are survived by two sons, David and 
             Mark; and six grandchildren, Cari, Keith, Joshua, Acacia, 
             Sydney, and Matt.
