"Former U.S. Sen. Mike Gravel, most well known for putting the Pentagon Papers into the Congressional Record to make them available to the American public, has died at the age of 91, according to multiple news reports on Sunday.
He died on June 26 in his Seaside, Calif. home, the Washington Post reported.

An outspoken critic of U.S. militarism and a two-time presidential candidate, Gravel served Alaska as a Democratic senator from 1969 to 1981, during which time he helped bring the military draft to an end.

In 1971, Gravel read over 4,000 pages of the Pentagon Papers—the classified documents leaked by Daniel Ellsberg that revealed vast U.S. government lies about the Vietnam War—into the Congressional Record. That action came a day before the U.S. Supreme Court lifted an injunction that had blocked the Post and the New York Times, which had already published excerpts of the documents, from further publication of them."
