Paul Fornshell Schenck

Biography:Paul Fornshell Schenck (April 19, 1899-November 30, 1968) was a U.S. Representative from Ohio.

Born in Miamisburg, Ohio, his family moved to Dayton, Ohio in 1908 where he graduated from Steele High School in 1917. He received two years of college training, a student teacher at Steele from 1917-19. He then worked in the automotive service business from 1919 to 1923. After that practical training, he became an automotive training teacher and faculty manager of athletics at Roosevelt High School in Dayton from 1923 to 1929.

He was the director of recreation for the city of Dayton from 1929-1935. In September 1935, during the Great Depression, he established own real estate, mortgage loan, and insurance business.

He began his public service career when he was elected to the Dayton Board of Education, serving from 1941-1950 and president for seven years. He was vice chairman of the Dayton Safety Council in 1946 and 1947 and president of the Dayton Real Estate Board 1947-1949.

He was nominated by the Republican party to run for Congress from Ohio's third congressional district in 1950, but was defeated by incumbant Edward G. Breen. Breen resigned in 1951 due to health concerns, and Schenck was subsequently elected in a special election to the Eighty-second Congress to fill the vacancy. He was reelected to the Eighty-third and to the five succeeding Congresses (November 6, 1951-January 3, 1965) but was defeated in 1964 for reelection to the Eighty-ninth Congress.

Schenck, a member of the Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce, introduced a bill in 1957 that would have prohibited the sale of vehicles discharging hydrocarbons in levels found dangerous by the Surgeon General. The bill never made it through Congress in that form. Still, it was a prescient statement at the time about the growing national concern over auto pollution. In 1959, President Eisenhower signed a modified Schenck Act. That law directed the Surgeon General to study the relationship between auto pollution and public health.

Paul F. Schenck was a Freemason, Knights Templar and member of the Shriners (Antioch Temple). He died in Dayton, Ohio and is interred in Woodland Cemetery.
