George Corley Wallace, Jr. (August 25, 1919 - September 13, 1998) was an American politician and the 45th Governor of Alabama, having served two nonconsecutive terms and two consecutive terms as a Democrat: 1963 - 1967, 1971 - 1979 and 1983 - 1987. Wallace has the third longest gubernatorial tenure in post Constitutional U.S. history, at 16 years and four days. He was a U.S. Presidential candidate for four consecutive elections, in which he sought the Democratic Party nomination in 1964, 1972, and 1976, and was the American Independent Party candidate in the 1968 presidential election. He remains the last third party candidate to receive a state's electoral college votes.


A 1972 assassination attempt left Wallace paralyzed, and he used a wheelchair for the remainder of his life. He is remembered for his Southern populist and segregationist attitudes during the mid 20th century period of the Civil Rights Movement and activism, which gained passage of federal civil rights legislation in the mid 1960s to enforce constitutional rights for all citizens. He eventually renounced segregationism but remained a populist.
