Summary, etc.: One of the most remarkable senators of early twentieth-century America, Albert J. Beveridge distinguished himself both as U.S. Senator from Indiana and as a historian. Braeman shows how Beveridge's achievements while in the Senate made him one of the foremost progressives of the time. Beveridge is presented both as a "Hoosier politician" and in the larger context of national politics.
Subject: Beveridge, Albert J. (Albert Jeremiah), 1862-1927.
