INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (ADAMS) – The remembrances are pouring in for former Indiana U.S. Senator Birch Bayh. He died Thursday at the age of 91. Indiana State University Title Nine Coordinator Stephannie Gambill says his work on the program leaves a lasting legacy.
Bayh wrote the federal Title Nine, which led to more women’s sports on college campuses and banned gender discrimination in college admissions. He was also the father of former Indiana Governor and former U.S. Senator Evan Bayh.
