Alvin James Baldus (April 27, 1926 – February 2, 2017) was an American Democratic politician and former member of Congress for Wisconsin from 1975 to 1981.

Early and career

Born in Garner, Iowa, Baldus graduated from high school in Elkton, Minnesota and went to Riverland Community College (formerly Austin Junior College) in Austin, Minnesota.[1]

He was in the United States Merchant Marine and the United States Army, serving in the Korean War from 1951 to 1953.[2]

In 1959, he wed Lorayne Reiten, to whom he would be married until his death in 2017.[3]

He served in the Wisconsin State Assembly from 1966 to 1975 and again from 1989 to 1997.


He served three terms in the United States House of Representatives from 1975 to 1981, representing Wisconsin's 3rd congressional district—the first Democrat to hold this seat in 66 years.[citation needed] He served as part of the 94th, 95th and 96th United States Congresses.

He ran unsuccessfully for reelection in 1980, losing to Republican Steve Gunderson.


He died at his home in Menomonie, Wisconsin.[4][5][6]
