Morris King Udall (June 15, 1922 December 12, 1998), better known as Mo, was an American politician who served as a U.S. representative from Arizona from 1961 to 1991. A former professional basketball player with the old National Basketball League Denver Nuggets, noted for his liberal views, Mo Udall was a tall, Lincolnesque figure with a self-deprecating wit and easy manner. Because of his wit, reporter David Broder deemed him "too funny to be president", which also ended up being the title of his autobiography in the 1980s. Udall earned a law degree from the University of Arizona in 1949..
