A Man's Reach -- A Transforming Life, 50: Civil Rights

"Concern for civil rights was stirring throughout the nation in the early 1960s. It was a major theme of the first governor's conference I attended, soon after becoming governor. It was in Hawaii, a place chosen because a number of governors were interested in playing golf. I was interested in crafting policy."
