Associate Member Publishes Biography of U.S. Senator BookCrafters has recently completed publication of a biography of Senator Philip A. Hart Jr., a three-term Democratic Senator from Michigan, who passed away in 1976. The Hart Senate Building in Washington D.C. was named after him as a tribute to his service. This 420 page, 8” x 10”, softcover book contains a foreword by Republican Senator Bob Dole, who was inspired to enter politics by Philip Hart in the 1950’s.
The Prince in the Senate was written by John Richard Willertz who became friends with Phil Hart while serving as Bay County, Michigan’s chairman of the senator’s reelection campaign. Thus began a 25 year labor of love writing the book. The author’s widow, Jackie Willertz, published the book posthumously. “Prince” is available from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
