Excerpt: James Terry Sanford (August 20, 1917 - April 18, 1998) was a United States politician and educator from North Carolina. A member of the Democratic Party, Sanford was the 65th Governor of North Carolina (1961-1965), a two-time U.S. Presidential candidate in the 1970s and a U.S. Senator (1986-1993).
