Bryan, a writer and a lecturer himself, served as a Representative from Nebraska (1891-95) and a colonel in the Spanish-American War; after unsuccessful runs for President in 1896, 1900, and 1908 he served as Wilson's Secretary of State (1913-15) and also established the Nebraska newspaper The Commoner (1901).|
