Birch Bayh: Making a Difference

Event Category:

March 23, 2021 @ 12:00 am

Author Robert Blaemire will share insights from his book, a biography of Senator Birch Bayh. Bayh served the people of Indiana for over 25 years and sponsored landmark legislation throughout his career, including the Bayh-Dole Act. The bill, co-sponsored with Senator Bob Dole, changed the way inventions created through federal research and development could be licensed by the private sector.

Robert Blaemire has been an active participant in politics all of his adult life. Born and raised in Indiana, his career began at the age of 18 upon entering George Washington University. His employment with Senator Birch Bayh (D-IN) began in 1967 during Bob’s freshman year and concluded with Bayh’s unsuccessful re-election campaign in 1980. In 1991, Bob created Blaemire Communications, a political computer services firm serving Democratic campaigns, progressive organizations, and political consultants.
