He served two terms as a member of theUnited States House of was the 41stUnited States Secretary of Stateunder PresidentWoodrow Wilson(1913–1915), taking a pacifist position on the World War. Bryan was a devoutChristian, a supporter ofpopular democracy, and an enemy of thegold standardas well as banks and railroads. He was a leader of thesilveritemovement in the 1890s, a peace advocate, aprohibitionist, and an opponent ofDarwinismon religious and humanitarian grounds. With his deep, commanding voice and wide travels, he was one of the best known orators and lecturers of the era.

In the intensely fought1896and1900 elections, he was defeated byWilliam McKinleybut retained control of theDemocratic Party. With over 500 speeches in 1896, Bryan invented the nationalstumping tour, in an era when other presidential candidates stayed home. In his three presidential offers, he promotedFree Silverin 1896,anti-imperialismin 1900, calling on Democrats to fight thetrusts(big corporations) and big banks, and embrace anti-elitist ideals ofrepublicanism. President Wilson appointed him Secretary of State in 1913, but Wilson's strong demands onGermanyafter theLusitaniawas torpedoed in 1915 caused Bryan to resign in protest. After 1920 he was a strong supporter ofProhibitionand energetically attacked Darwinism and evolution, most famously at theScopes Trialin 1925. Five days after the end of the case, he died in his sleep.
