Robert Scott picks up his father’s mantle in politics. He becomes head of the state Grange, and is elected lieutenant governor in 1964 after considering a run for governor. But he is a smoother, more moderate figure than his father. With controversy rising over civil rights and riots, Bob Scott becomes a supporter of law and order.

Keywords:   Robert Scott, Grange, civil rights, law and order, speaker ban, Ku Klux Klan
