Scott McGeary’s request for an autographed photo of Senator Daniel
Inouye (D-HI) led to a four-year assignment as a Senate page. From 1969 to 1973, McGeary came to know the Senate and Capitol grounds like few other teenagers, working for Republican and Democratic sponsors and attending page school. McGeary recounts his duties as a page, changes in Senate leadership during his tenure, and heated debates on the Senate floor over Supreme Court nominations and Vietnam War policy. His page experience sparked a lifelong love for public service and a career in public affairs and government relations.
