SAR Compatriot Presidents of the United States

George Walker Bush (43rd President of the United States)

​​George Walker Bush​​

George Walker Bush, son of President George H. W. Bush, served two consecutive terms as the forty-third president of the United States from 2001 to 2009. He was born in New Haven, Connecticut, on July 6, 1946. He is a graduate of Yale University and the Harvard Business School. Before becoming president, Bush served as the governor of Texas. President Bush’s SAR Revolutionary War ancestor was Colonel Samuel Herrick, who served with distinction as commander of the Vermont Ranger Militia. In July 1988, George W. Bush received his SAR membership certificate and lapel rosette while he was the Texas state governor. Like his father, Bush is a Texas perpetual member of the Patrick Henry Chapter in Austin, Texas. After completing his second presidential term in 2009, Bush returned to Texas and purchased a home in a suburban area of Dallas. He is currently a public speaker, has written a memoir, and has taken up painting as a hobby. The George W. Bush Presidential Center, a presidential library and museum located near Dallas, was opened in 2013.
