George Corley Wallace Jr. (August 25, 1919 – September 13, 1998) was an American Democratic politician who served as the 45th Governor of Alabama for four terms. He is best remembered for his staunch segregationist and populist views.
During his tenure, he promoted “low-grade industrial development, low taxes, and trade schools.” He sought the United States presidency as a Democrat three times, and once as an American Independent Party candidate, unsuccessfully each time. Wallace notoriously opposed desegregation and supported the policies of “Jim Crow” during the Civil Rights Movement, declaring in his 1963 inaugural address that he stood for “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.” In 1965, Martin Luther King Jr. called Wallace “perhaps the most dangerous racist in America today.”
