Television producers are looking for descendants of the once-feuding Hatfield and McCoy families to take part in a reality show that will be filmed in West Virginia.
As a 23-year-old Navy officer in 1945, Mark O. Hatfield was among the first American servicemen to see personally the destruction wrought upon Hiroshima by an atomic bomb. It was an experience that helped shape Mr. Hatfield into an outspoken critic of war as he went on to become a two-term Republican Oregon governor, then the longest-serving U.S. senator in Oregon history.
He said his views on both issues were based on his belief in the sanctity of life.
