InfoBob Inglis, 50, grew up in Bluffton, South Carolina. Inglis went to Duke University (Class of 1981) where he met his wife, Mary Anne (Class of 1982). They got married after his first year at the University of Virginia School of Law and lived in Charlottesville until his graduation in 1984. They have five children ages 23 to 12 (Robert, 23; Mary Ashton, 21; McCullough, 20; Andrews, 15; Meade, 13).

From 1993-1998, Inglis represented the Fourth District of South Carolina (Greenville, Spartanburg, Union and a portion of Laurens County) in the U.S. House of Representatives. After an unsuccessful challenge to U.S. Senator Fritz Hollings in 1998, Inglis rejoined the law firm of Leatherwood Walker Todd & Mann, P.C. where he practiced commercial real estate and corporate law.

Inglis was elected again to Congress in 2004 and to a sixth term overall in 2008. He serves on the Science & Technology Committee and is Ranking Member on the Energy & Environment Subcommittee. He also sits on the Foreign Affairs Committee during the 111th Congress, as he did in the last Congress also. He chaired the Research Subcommittee of the Science Committee in the 109th Congress and served on the Judiciary Committee and on the Education and Workforce Committee. He co-chairs the House Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Caucus.

Inglis enjoys working on the Northern Greenville County farm where he lives; hiking, paddling kayaks and canoes with his wife and children; running and working out at his home gym; and sailing and skiing during occasional trips to his hometown of Bluffton. He and his family are members of Redeemer Presbyterian Church of Travelers Rest.
