Interview The Dick Cavett Show (ABC)
Guests: Sen. Sam Ervin Wide World Special on Watergate-Dick Cavett welcomes sole guest Senator Sam J. Ervin Jr. Dick interviews him in his Senate office. Samuel James "Sam" Ervin Jr. (September 27, 1896 - April 23, 1985) was an American politician. A member of the Democratic Party, he served as a U.S. Senator from North Carolina from 1954 to 1974. A native of Morganton, he liked to call himself a "country lawyer", and often told humorous stories in his Southern drawl. Unexpectedly, he became a liberal hero for his support of civil liberties. He is remembered for his work in the investigation committees that brought down Senator Joseph McCarthy in 1954 and especially his investigation in 1972 of the Watergate scandal that led to the resignation in 1974 of President Richard Nixon.
