Malcolm
Wallop
 (February 27,
1933 – September 14, 2011) was an American 
rancherRepublican politician, and three-term United States Senator from Wyoming. Wallop was born in New York City, graduated from the Cate School in Santa BarbaraCalifornia, and attended Yale University, where he was a member of St. Anthony Hall. His ancestors in England were titled English
aristocracy, and his roots in Wyoming stemmed back to pioneer ranchers in
the 
Big Horn area. His
paternal grandfather, Wyoming cattle rancher 
Oliver Henry
Wallop
, emigrated to the United States from England in the late 19th
century and inherited 
the Earldom of Portsmouth.
He is thought to be the only person to have served in both the British 
House of Lords and
the 
Wyoming House of
Representatives
. Following
his graduation from Yale in 1954, Malcolm Wallop served in the 
U.S. Army as a first lieutenant from 1955 to 1957. After his discharge from the Army, Wallop began
ranching, and entered politics in 1969 as a successful candidate for the 
Wyoming House of
Representatives
. He served two terms, followed by a stint in
the 
Wyoming State Senate from
1973 to 1976.
In
1974, Wallop sought the Republican 
gubernatorial nomination, but was defeated by Richard R. “Dick” Jones, a trucking executive
from 
Cody and Powell in Park County in
northwestern Wyoming. Jones went on to lose the 
general election in a heavily Democratic year
to 
Edgar Herschler of Kemmerer in Lincoln County in
southwestern Wyoming. In 1976, in another nationally Democratic year, Wallop
successfully unseated three-term Democratic U.S. Senator 
Gale W. McGee, winning 55 percent of the vote to win a seat in
the 
United States Senate.
