Garner E. Shriver, Republican, served eight terms in the United States House of Representatives as Congressman for the Fourth Congressional District of Kansas. During the 87th and 88th Congresses, he served on the House Judiciary Committee, and in the 89th Congress he was appointed to the powerful House Committee on Appropriations. Shriver also held the distinction of ranking member of the Foreign Operations Subcommittee and was a member of the Labor and Health, Education and Welfare Subcommittee. In the 94th Congress, he was appointed to the newly created House Budget Committee. In addition, he was president of the 87th Congress Club in the House of Representatives and served on the Republican Policy Committee and the Executive Committee of the Committee on Committees.

Prior to his election to Congress in 1960, Mr. Shriver served two terms (1947-1951) in the Kansas House of Representatives and two four-year terms in the Kansas Senate (1953-1960).
