        The Heir | James Baker: The Man Who Made Washington Work

        Find out how James Baker's upbringing influenced his life. Born in 1930 into a family of power and privilege, both Baker's grandfather and his father were prominent Houston attorneys, and Baker followed in the family tradition.
