Adlai and Abe Go Together

Adlai and Abe Go Together

Officials at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum are planning an exhibit featuring former Gov. Adlai Stevenson II and his family’s political dynasty.

The Illinois Historic Preservation Agency has hired a company to create exhibits that could coincide with the 50th anniversary of Stevenson’s death.

Stevenson’ son, former U.S. Sen. Adlai Stevenson III of Illinois, donated papers, memorabilia and objects that the Evanston-based design firm Teller Madsen will use in the exhibit.

It’s also likely to include information on former Vice President Adlai Stevenson I. He served as the nation’s 23rd vice president in the 1890s.

Artifacts for the exhibit could also come from Stevenson collections at Illinois State University and the McLean County Museum of History.
