Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Brockman (Brock) Adams was born January 13, 1927, in Atlanta, Georgia, and grew up in Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington. Adams served in the United States Navy from 1944 until 1946 and graduated from the University of Washington in 1949 with a degree in economics. He received his law degree from Harvard University in 1952.

Adams went into private practice in Seattle, where he also taught law at the American Banking Institute. As a result of Adams's involvement in John. F. Kennedy's presidential campaign, he was appointed U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Washington in 1961. He held this position until 1964, when he campaigned for a seat in the House of Representatives. Adams, a Democrat, represented the greater Seattle area and was re-elected six times.

During Adams's career in the House of Representatives, he served on several committees, including Interstate and Foreign Commerce, Revenue and Financial Affairs, Banking and Currency, and Agriculture. Adams became chairman of the House Budget Committee in 1974. His expertise regarding transportation issues led to his appointment as Secretary of Transportation by President Jimmy Carter in 1977. Adams resigned his House seat and worked in Carter's cabinet until his resignation in 1979. Adams then returned to Seattle to enter private law practice.

In 1985 Adams ran for the U.S. Senate against incumbent Republican Slade Gorton, winning Gorton's seat in an upset victory. Shortly after Adams launched his re-election campaign in 1992, the Seattle Times published a front-page story in which eight anonymous women accused the senator of sexual misconduct. Adams denied the allegations but withdrew from the re-election race and retired from public life at the conclusion of his Senate term.

In his Senate career, Brock Adams championed women's issues as well as those of senior citizens. He took a conservationist stance on many environmental issues, focusing particularly on the Hanford Nuclear Reservation. Adams also opposed Presidents Ronald Reagan and George Bush, Sr., in many aspects of foreign policy, especially regarding United States involvement in the Persian Gulf War.

Brock Adams died in 2004 at his home in Maryland. He was 77 years old.
