                                      BIOGRAPHY

               Alan MacGregor Cranston was born on June 19, 1914, in 
             Palo Alto, California, to William MacGregor Cranston and 
             Carol (Dixon) Cranston, both of Scottish descent. Alan 
             Cranston and his sister Eleanor grew up in Los Altos, 
             where their father was in the real estate business.
               At Mountain View Union High School in Los Altos, Mr. 
             Cranston was on the football and track teams, edited the 
             yearbook, and wrote articles for the school newspaper. 
             After graduating in 1932 he studied at Pomona College in 
             Claremont, California, for a year. He then spent a summer 
             term at the University of Mexico before enrolling the 
             following year at Stanford University, where he majored in 
             English. Discussions with campus friends about the 
             Depression, the New Deal, and the rise of nazism in 
             Germany had an important influence in shaping his ideas. 
             His keen interest in journalism led him to work as a 
             reporter for small-town newspapers during college 
             vacations.
               After obtaining his B.A. degree from Stanford in 1936, 
             Mr. Cranston joined the staff of the International News 
             Service. From 1936 to 1938 he served in England, Germany, 
             Italy, and Ethiopia as a foreign correspondent. He 
             returned to the United States in 1939 and settled in New 
             York City, where he contributed articles to the American 
             Mercury and the New York Times Book Review and lectured on 
             such topics as the dangers of American isolationism, the 
             looming war, and the threat of fascism.
               Having read the original of Adolf Hitler's ``Mein 
             Kampf'' in Germany, Mr. Cranston discovered that the 
             version then being distributed in the United States had 
             been edited to delete passages that might alert Americans 
             and the world to the threat of nazism. He prepared a 
             brochure, an abridged version with anti-Nazi explanatory 
             notes, and sold it for 10 cents a copy. The brochure, 
             published by the Noram Publishing Company in 1939, sold 
             500,000 copies before Hitler's agents got it banned by 
             American courts for copyright infringement.
               In 1939 Mr. Cranston moved to Washington, D.C., where he 
             worked until 1941 as a representative of the Common 
             Council for American Unity, an organization whose 
             objective was to exercise a liberalizing influence on 
             legislation. After the United States entered World War II, 
             he joined the staff of the Office of War Information. He 
             served there for 2 years, from 1942 to 1944, as Chief of 
             the Foreign Language Division. It was partly as a result 
             of Mr. Cranston's efforts that Italian citizens in the 
             United States were removed from classification as enemy 
             aliens. A post-war Italian premier later suggested that it 
             was that act of friendship toward Italians that helped to 
             expedite Italy's decision to make peace with the Allies. 
             Mr. Cranston is also credited with the idea of having an 
             American town renamed Lidice in memory of the 
             Czechoslovakian town wiped out by the Germans in 1942. In 
             response, the Czech-American townspeople of Stern Park 
             Gardens, Illinois, renamed their town Lidice.
               In 1944 Mr. Cranston enlisted in the U.S. Army as a 
             private and was assigned to an infantry unit in the United 
             States. Later he served as editor of Army Talk and co-
             authored a pamphlet entitled ``Fascism.'' Discharged as a 
             sergeant in 1945, Mr. Cranston returned to Washington with 
             the determination to devote his efforts to world peace and 
             international organization. His book, ``The Killing of the 
             Peace'' (Viking Press, 1945), is an account of events from 
             1916 to 1923 that led to the defeat of the League of 
             Nations, with emphasis on the role of the United States. 
             The New York Times selected it as one of the 10 best books 
             of 1945.
               Mr. Cranston had a pioneering role in the world 
             federalist movement that evolved after World War II with 
             the advocacy of the formation of a Federal union of 
             nations. He directed the executive committee of Americans 
             United for World Government and in 1945 took part in the 
             Conference on World Government in Dublin, New Hampshire, 
             which was attended by 30 writers, editors, lawyers, 
             educators, and others dedicated to the quest for peace. At 
             that conference he was assigned the task of presenting to 
             U.N. delegates, who met in London in February 1946, the 
             ``Dublin Declaration,'' which proposed the transformation 
             of the U.N. General Assembly into a world legislature with 
             ``limited but definite and adequate power for the 
             prevention of war.'' During that period Mr. Cranston 
             served as chairman of a world government conference at 
             Princeton, New Jersey, and in 1945-46 he was executive 
             secretary of the Council for American-Italian Affairs, 
             Inc.
               In early 1947 he returned to California, where he 
             embarked on a successful career in real estate. He became 
             the head of Ames-Cranston Co., a Palo Alto firm founded by 
             his father. He later became president of Homes for a 
             Better America, a Los Angeles building company, and vice 
             president of the Carlsberg Financial Corporation, a Los 
             Angeles land investment firm.
               Meanwhile, Americans United for World Government and 
             five other organizations merged in February 1947 to form 
             the United World Federalists, Inc., and Mr. Cranston was 
             elected head of the new organization's San Francisco 
             chapter. He later became chairman of its Northern 
             California branch. In 1949 the national executive council 
             of the United World Federalists unanimously elected Mr. 
             Cranston its national president. He served until 1952 and 
             continued to serve for years as 1 of 12 honorary vice 
             presidents of the United World Federalists.
               An active Democrat, Mr. Cranston was a founder of the 
             California Democratic Council, a federation of local 
             Democratic clubs formed to revitalize the party after its 
             defeat in the 1952 presidential election. He became the 
             first president of the council in 1953 and served until 
             1958. In his first bid for public office, Mr. Cranston 
             successfully ran for Controller of the State of California 
             in 1958, becoming the first Democrat to hold that office 
             in 72 years. He was elected to a second 4-year term in 
             1962.
               Mr. Cranston entered the U.S. Senate race in 1964 in 
             view of the ill health of incumbent Democratic Senator 
             Clair Engle of California. He lost the Democratic 
             nomination to Pierre Salinger, former White House press 
             secretary. In the Republican landslide of 1966, Mr. 
             Cranston was defeated in his bid for a third term as 
             Controller, although he received 47 percent of the vote.
               He again entered the race for a Senate seat in 1968 and
