ADLAI E. STEVENSON (1952, 1956).
TLS: "Adlai E. Stevenson", 1p, 7x71/2. Chicago, 1957 January 9. To Dr. Eugenie Anderman, New York. In full: "It was kind and thoughtful of you to write. Letters such as yours make me feel that the effort of these past trying years has been worthwhile. And I am very grateful to you for sending me 'The Four Seasons'. It will give me a great deal of enjoyment." Adlai E. Stevenson, grandson and namesake of Cleveland's second Vice President and Governor of Illinois (1949-1953), was nominated for President on the third ballot at the July 21-26, 1952 Democratic National Convention held in Chicago's International Amphitheatre. HE LOST THE NOVEMBER 4, 1952 ELECTION TO THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE, POPULAR WORLD WAR II HERO GENERAL DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER BY 442-89 ELECTORAL VOTES (39-NINE STATES). Four years later, Stevenson was renominated on the first ballot at the August 13-17, 1956 Democratic National Convention, again held in Chicago's International Amphitheatre. THE RESULTS OF THE NOVEMBER 6, 1956 ELECTION WERE BASICALLY THE SAME. President Eisenhower was reelected, defeating Stevenson 457-73 electoral votes (41-seven states). Stevenson later served as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations (1961-1965), where he displayed his eloquence and wit to the world, especially in confrontations with the Soviet Ambassador. Light vertical crease touches first "n" in Stevenson, else fine condition.
