The Man from Libertyville: Adlai Stevenson II

Presented by Nicole Stocker
Responsible for interpretation and programming at the Adlai E. Stevenson II Historic Home

An influential figure in the political history of the U.S., Adlai E. Stevenson II was Governor of Illinois, ran twice for President as the Democratic National Candidate, and served as Ambassador to the United Nations. Though he lost both presidential campaigns, it was Stevenson’s ideas that are his real lasting legacy. Join us for a virtual presentation about Stevenson’s life and career, broadcast from his study, with time at the end for questions and examining some of the artifacts at the site more closely.
