About the Program
In "The Stevensons," Jean Baker traces the history of four generations of the Stevenson family from Illinois. Prof. Baker describes the family's Scottish-Irish roots, and details the lives and careers of several family members that went into politics, including Grover Cleveland's Vice-President, Adlai Stevenson, and two-time Democratic presidential candidate and former Illinois governor, Adlai Stevenson II.
Jean Baker has been a professor in the Goucher College History Department in Baltimore, Maryland since 1970. She is the author of "Maryland: A History of Its People," "Mary Todd Lincoln: A Biography," and edited "Votes for Women: The Women Suffrage Battle Revisited."
