威廉‧詹寧斯‧布萊安(William Jennings Bryan)不但是一位天生的演說家、名律師、參選三次的總統候選人,也是一位虔誠的新教徒。他出生於伊利諾州的塞勒姆(Salem),卻在內布拉斯加州展開政治生涯。1890年他在美國眾議院中取得席位。苦於東北部農作物交易價格過低的中西部及南部的貧苦農民便組成了人民黨(Populist Party),布萊恩為這些農民及勞動者(也就是所謂的平民)所做的努力,為他贏得「偉大的平民」的稱號。

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."
