Moody, (Arthur Edson) Blair

(1902–54) journalist, U.S. senator; born in New Haven, Conn. After winning acclaim as a Washington, D.C. correspondent for the Detroit News, he was appointed to the U.S. Senate (Dem., Mich.; 1951–53). He continued to support an international role for the U.S.A. as he had in his columns and as had the senator whose seat he filled, Arthur Vandenberg, but he failed to be reelected.
