NYSC Supporters

  • We also deeply mourn the passing on May 8, 1998 of former U.S. Senator Jennings Randolph of West Virginia -- a longtime supporter and friend of the National Youth Science Camp. He had originally been elected to the U.S. House in 1932 and served seven terms; in 1958 he won election to the U.S. Senate and remained until he retired in early 1985 (when he was well into his 80's). From 1963 until 1984, he was the host of the annual NYSC Senate Luncheon when the delegates visited Washington, DC. Senator Randolph was especially known for being the author of the amendment which gave 18-year-olds the right to vote.
