Adlai E. Stevenson Speeches from the Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library, Princeton University in Milner Library, Illinois State University.
The document introduces and lists tape recordings of Adlai E. Stevenson's speeches from 1952 until his death in 1965. The objective is to supplement the tapes and to aid in their usage by offering background information. The guide is presented in two sections. Section I offers an overview of the political atmosphere in 1952 and 1956 and Stevenson's rise to national prominence. It also discusses the issues of the 1952 campaign, the personalities of the candidates, and three categories of speeches: (1) rally/whistlestop speeches; (2) speeches on major issues; and (3) inspirational speeches. An annotated bibliography lists five books representing a selection of the best sources of analysis of Stevenson's speaking style as well as some of the more interesting and less well known books about him. Section II, the major portion of the document, lists the speeches in chronological order, covering the tape number, date, occasion, and topic. The speeches date from the governor's report on January 2, 1952 to the last interview before his death on July 14, 1965. They include presidential nomination acceptance speeches, campaign speeches, press conferences, television appearances, interviews, ambassadorial speeches, and United Nations speeches. (CK)
