Hammerschmidt served for 13 terms in the
U.S. House from N.W. Arkansas district before
he retired in 1993.  In 1974, a nationally
Democratic year, he defeated then 28-year-old
future President Bill Clinton.  He was also the
the first Republican elected to the U.S.
House from Arkansas since Reconstruction.
