Born on July 6, 1946, George Walker Bush is the oldest son of a President and a member of one of America’s most famous political families.1 It is a family that traces its roots to the Pilgrims coming on the Mayflower and who are distantly related to the Queen of Great Britain. The Walker’s and Bush’s were banking and steel magnates whose members included personal advisers to Herbert Hoover and Franklin Roosevelt. Bush’s mother, Barbara Pierce, is a descendant of President Franklin Pierce. The Walker and Bush families stand for business accomplishment, Republicanism, conservative family values and service to the country both in terms of the military and politics.2 Given the wealth, fame, connections and strong social code of such a powerful family, Bush in his early years gained a perspective on life that was larger than his immediate nuclear family and his boyhood surroundings in Texas.
