June 12th, 1963
Clair Engle was a Democratic member of the California Senate elected in 1936, and a member of the United States House of Representatives, from California's 2nd district, from 1943-1959. He worked to expand the California Central Valley Project and served on several committees while Congressman and Senator. Engle authored or co-authored 104 bills that were signed into law. In 1963, the United States House of Representatives rejected an extension of the Bracero Program, and when non-work benefits braceros received were denied to United States workers, its popularity plummeted. The bracero program was terminated in 1964. This audio tape was recorded only 2 months before Engle underwent surgery to remove a fatal brain tumor.
