3986. Prairie Populist: The Life and Times of Usher L. Burdick, by Edward O. Blackorby (read 14 Feb 2005) When I learned that the author of this book had written it, I at once wanted to read it because I so enjoyed his biography of William Lemke, read 12 March 1989. I never cease to be fascinated by the turbulent political history of North Dakota from 1910 to 1960 and so I ate up this account of Burdick, who was prominent politically all during that time--he served as U.S. Representative from 1935 to 1945 and from 1949 to 1959, dying 19 Aug 1960. Burdick ran on the Republican ticket but usually voted with the Democrats, except on international issues. This book is indispensable to anyone enamored by North Dakota political history as I am. ( )
