Adlai E. Stevenson III. 2009

Based on a political archive that spans five generations and more than 150 years, this collection of narratives, observations, wit, and wisdom, enlivens and informs on the family of former senator Adlai E. Stevenson III. This volume covers Adlai I, who served as vice president for Grover Cleveland Adlai II, who served in the Roosevelt and Truman administrations and as governor of Illinois Adlai III, who was an Illinois State Representative, state treasurer, senator, and two-time candidate for Illinois governor, and other family members in between. Whether it is Abraham Lincoln’s presidential campaign material—a Stevenson family member was a friend, contemporary, and promoter—after the famous seven debates or the forewarnings of the Comprehensive Anti-Terrorism Act of 1979, much of the history of the United States is presented here from personalized views of those who experienced and influenced it.
