About the Senator:
Pennsylvania State Senator Clarence D. Bell, who died July 26, 2002 at the age of 88, served Delaware County's 9th District for more than four decades. At the time of his death, he was the longest-serving public official in Pennsylvania and was considered the "dean" of the Senate. Widely-known as a champion of veterans, unions, consumers, and motorists, the senator also was instrumental in the development of Penn State Brandywine, playing a key role in obtaining state funding for all of the major buildings now on the campus.
