Former Indiana Governor Otis "Doc" Bowen Dies At 95

Former Indiana Gov. Otis “Doc” Bowen died Saturday evening at the Catherine Kasper Life Center in Donaldson, Ind.

He was 95

Bowen was elected Indiana’s 44th governor in 1972 and served two consecutive terms.

He was the first governor to do that since 1851.

Before being elected governor, he served in the army medical corps during World War II and began a private practice when he returned home after the war.

After serving as governor, he returned to medicine as a professor at Indiana University Medical Center until President Ronald Reagan nominated him to be the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Bowen led that government agency until Reagan left office.

Current Governor Mike Pence has ordered all flags at state facilities to be flown at half-staff and asked residents and businesses to do the same to honor Bowen for the next seven days.
