Roth, William Victor, Jr.

Roth, William Victor, Jr.
▪ 2004

      American politician (b. July 22, 1921, Great Falls, Mont.—d. Dec. 13, 2003, Washington, D.C.), served in the U.S. Congress for 34 years—in the House of Representatives from 1967 to 1970 and the Senate from 1971 to 2001—and was best known for his attention to financial matters. He was a champion of tax cuts, revealed overspending by the Defense Department, and sponsored legislation that gave rise to a tax-sheltered retirement account that was given his name—the Roth IRA.
