In this October 24, 1965 photo, Walter Mondale posed with Sen. Hubert Humphrey. Viewing his first-year record as a Senator, Mondale was proudest of his work in the private deliberations of the Senate Agriculture Committee. When Mondale stressed his advocacy in committee of the Feed Grains Price Support Program, he illustrated his personal concept of the effective role of a freshman Senator.

Walter F. Mondale, a preacher's son from southern Minnesota who climbed to the pinnacle of U.S. politics as an influential senator, vice president and Democratic nominee for president, died on Monday. He was 93.

Known as Fritz to family, friends and voters alike, Mondale died in Minneapolis, according to a statement from his family.

"As proud as we were of him leading the presidential ticket for Democrats in 1984, we know that our father's public policy legacy is so much more than that," read the Mondale family statement.
