Arkansas Congressman Wilbur Mills, in office from 1939 to 1977, was the head of the powerful Ways and Means Committee for 17 years. In 1972, he made an unsuccessful bid for the Democratic nomination for president. Two embarrassing incidents with Argentine stripper Fanne Foxe in 1974 led to his demise, but he acknowledged his alcoholism and helped found renowned treatment programs in his home state.
