The Eight Arms of Manufacturing:

William Jennings Bryan

Our Own Family Legacy in Nebraska: William Jennings Bryan

The founders of the Co-Packing Network (Nebraskans Network) are descendants of William Jennings Bryan (a well-known resident of Lincoln, NE).

William Jennings Bryan (March 19, 1860 – July 26, 1925) was an American orator and politician from Nebraska. Beginning in 1896, he emerged as a dominant force in the Democratic Party, running three times as the party’s nominee for President of the United States in the 1896, 1900, and 1908 elections. He also served as the United States Secretary of State under Woodrow Wilson. Because of his faith in the wisdom of the common people, he was often called “The Great Commoner”. Born and raised in Illinois, Bryan moved to Nebraska in the 1880s. He won election to the House of Representatives in the 1890 elections, serving two terms   Tithe 1896 Democratic National Convention, Bryan delivered his “Cross of Gold speech” which attacked the gold standard. In a repudiation of incumbent President Grover Cleveland and his conservative Bourbon Democrats, the Democratic convention nominated Bryan for president, making Bryan the youngest major party presidential nominee in U.S. history. Subsequently, Bryan was also nominated for president by the left-wing Populist Party, and many Populists would eventually follow Bryan into the Democratic Party. In the intensely fought 1896 presidential election, Republican nominee William McKinley emerged triumphant. At age 36, Bryan remains the youngest person in United States history to receive an electoral vote.   Bryan gained fame as an orator, as he invented the national stumping tour when he reached an audience of 5 million people in 27 states in 1896.
BRYAN IN LINCOLN TODAY:  The Bryan Hospital and the William Jennings Bryan House

Bryan Health (named after William Jennings Bryan):  The system operates an acute-care hospital, several outpatient clinics and a College of Health Sciences, as well as a physician network and a heart institute.  The organization’s name is derived from William Jennings Bryan’s gift of land to the United Methodist Church for a hospital in 1922 (Wikipedia).
* The Vice President of United States, Richard Bruce Cheney was born at Bryan Memorial Hospital in 1941.
