|William Jennings Bryan (1860-1925)|
|Just 600,000 votes shy of becoming president in 1896, William Jennings Bryan remained a strong figure in American politics, serving as Woodrow Wilson's Secretary of State and advocating isolationistic, agrarian interests which were popular with America's shrinking rural populations. Famous for defending fundamentalism in the Scopes Trial, Bryan gave numerous lectures, most of which concerned religion or politics. Bryan's advocacy of 'the common American' earned him the title 'the Great Commoner.'|
