Description: "At first simply known as the New Senate Office Building, the building was renamed in 1972 for Senator Everett M. Dirksen. An Illinois Republican, Senator Dirksen had served in the House from 1933 to 1949 and in the Senate from 1951 to 1969. He was the Republican minority leader from 1959 until his death in 1969. Nationally known for his oratorical skills, Senator Dirksen won a Grammy award for Gallant Men, an album of his speeches. He also won recognition as an effective legislative tactician, providing crucial support for the ratification of the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty and the passage of landmark civil rights legislation."
