List of the oldest United States Senators

This is a list of the 100 oldest people who have served in the United States Senate. It is compiled from senators who have lived the longest, irrespective of their age while in office. Several people on this list were never elected to office as they were appointed, therefore, an addendum has been provided to show the 100 oldest that were elected. Cornelius Cole holds the record for the longest lifespan at 102 years, 47 days as of his death on November 3, 1924. The oldest living person is John Glenn at age 94 years, 182 days and he will become the oldest ever if he is still alive on September 4, 2023. The living senator that is closest to entering this list is Harris Wofford at age 89 years, 282 days.
