Joseph Robert "Bob" Kerrey (born August 27, 1943) was the 35th Governor of Nebraska from 1983 to 1987 and a U.S. Senator from Nebraska (1989–2001). He was also an unsuccessful candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1992. Since leaving the Senate he has served as president of The New School, a university in New York City.

Kerrey was born in Lincoln, Nebraska and attended Lincoln Northeast High School, where he credits his chemistry teacher, Bob Reese, for inspiring him to pursue a career in the sciences. He went on to graduate from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1966 with a degree in pharmacy. During his senior year at Nebraska, he was a member of the Society of Innocents, the chancellor's senior honorary.

Kerrey served in the United States Navy as a SEAL from 1966 to 1969 during the Vietnam War, lost the lower part of one leg in combat, and received the Medal of Honor. He was a member of Phi Gamma Delta.
