Porter McKeever, publicity director of volunteers for presidential

candidate Adlai Stevenson in the 1952 election, talked about his personal

experiences in his book, Adlai Stevenson: His Life and Legacy. Among

the topics discussed was the progressive nature of Mr. Stevenson.

McKeever noted that while many of Stevenson’s political views were

scorned at the time, successive administrations have adopted many of

his ideas such as the ending of the military draft and the

development of the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. close
