Early Life and Education

Harold Windsor was born on the 14th August 1935 to John and Sarah Windsor, at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital. His father, John, left early in his childhood for North Africa, deployed with the 1st Infantry Division as a Lieutenant during World War Two. Whilst fighting against German forces under Rommel, he was shot through the knee, an injury that left him with a limp for the rest of his life. Upon his return, John Windsor successfully ran for New York Attorney General, using his pre-war experience as a prolific criminal prosecutor and human rights campaigner to win a majority in the 1946 election. His mother Sarah gave birth to two more children, Ronny and George, before resuming her role as a teacher at a local primary school. Harold was brought up in a loving and caring family, from a middle class background. His parents donated much of their income to charity and other philanthropic causes, and he was taught values of respect and generosity from a very young age. He was enrolled in the prestigious New York Military Academy, a school at which he thrived and excelled, before being accepted into Harvard University, and later the Harvard School of Law, following the footsteps of his father. He graduated with full honors, and many commendations from staff and classmates alike.

Military Service

In September 1957, fresh from law school and a period of philanthropic work, Harold enlisted in the United States Navy, just weeks before the start of the Vietnamese War. Serving first as an Ensign on the USS Wahoo, a Tang-class submarine on patrol in the Pacific Ocean, he was swiftly promoted to a Junior Lieutenant before his transfer to the regular navy in late 1959. Aboard the USS Lexington aircraft carrier he rose to distinction, coming to the direct attention of the captain numerous times. In 1962, after 5 years of service, predominately in active combat in Vietnam, he left the Navy as a distinguished Lieutenant Commander.

Politics

In late 1962, he joined the state prosecution service as a junior legal adviser. He shone throughout his time there, and whilst here he was convinced by his father to enter politics. He followed his paternal legacy into the Democratic party, and by 1966 had worked his way up through the state prosecution service to successfully stand for New York Attorney General. In 1970, at the end of his term as Attorney General, he decided not to stand for election again. Instead, he diversified into central politics, and through support of fellow lawyers and backers, and his influence as ex-attorney general he gained publicity quickly. His witty, cynical remarks and fair, innovative, and honest policies struck a chord in the hearts of the electorate, and he announced his election campaign for governor to vast support in 1969. On the 1st January 1970, Harold "the Hazza" Windsor became the 52nd Governor of the State of New York. In 1973, Harry decided to run for Senator, as he did not wish to return to the same seat after his gap year despite popular demand, citing an inability to change the laws of his beloved nation for the better. He won the senatorial elections with a 78% majority in '74.
