威廉.詹宁斯.布莱安(William Jennings Bryan)不但是一位天生的演说家、名律师、参选三次的总统候选人,也是一位虔诚的新教徒。他出生于伊利诺州的塞勒姆(Salem),却在内布拉斯加州展开政治生涯。1890年他在美国众议院中取得席位。苦于东北部农作物交易价格过低的中西部及南部的贫苦农民便组成了人民党(Populist Party),布莱恩为这些农民及劳动者(也就是所谓的平民)所做的努力,为他赢得「伟大的平民」的称号。

William Jennings Bryan was a gifted speaker, lawyer, three-time presidential candidate, and devout Protestant. Although he was born in Salem, Illinois, Bryan made his career in Nebraska politics. He won a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1890. A tireless defender of the small farmer and laborer, Bryan worked closely with the Populist Party, a group of poor Midwestern and Southern farmers who suffered economically due to low prices for their crops, which they blamed on Northeastern business interests. Bryan's efforts on behalf of farmers and laborers (the so-called "common" people) earned him the title the "Great Commoner."
