InfoMax Sieben Baucus

Max was born in Helena, Mont., on December 11, 1941. He graduated from Helena High School in 1959 and earned both a bachelor of arts degree and a law degree from Stanford University.

Max is married to Wanda Baucus, and he has one son, Zeno.

After graduating from law school in 1967, Max worked for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for three years. In 1971, he returned to Montana and opened a law practice in Missoula.

Max served as both Executive Director and Committee Coordinator for Montana's 1972 Constitutional Convention, which crafted what then was considered one of the most far-sighted state constitutions in the nation because of its balance of Montanans' sense of community and individualism.

In 1972, Max was elected to the Montana State Legislature as Representative from a legislative district in Missoula. He served as a state representative until his election to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1974. After reelection to the U.S. House in 1976, Max was elected to the Senate in 1978, and re-elected in 1984, 1990, 1996 and 2002.
