"Wanting not only for ourselves but for others also, a fairer chance for all people everywhere."

World War I pilot, New Hampshire's youngest governor, and first head of Social Security, he was appointed U.S. Ambassador to Great Britain in February 1941.

His compassion made him one of New Hampshire's most beloved governors.
During the Great Depression, he stopped to chat with unemployed men, typically giving them a 50-cent piece, enough for a meal and a bed.

His efforts as governor helped establish a minimum wage for women and children, set aside land for state forests, and create the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen.

During World War II, the ambassador became a hero to the British people for helping secure U.S. assistance in the war effort and for his kindness and courage in the streets of London during the Nazi Blitz.
