American politician, the eldest of three sons of Illinois governor Adlai Stevenson. On 11/03/1970 he was elected to the U.S. Senate, as a liberal democrat, by a landslide vote. A practical and strong-minded maverick, he won his party's nomination to the seat. Six years prior he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives; he has always considered politics to be the "art of the possible." His career in politics is ironic, as Stevenson dislikes public speaking and campaigning. On the other hand, his family has been involved in state and national politics for three generations. Also a lawyer, he passed the bar in 1957 and was a partner in a law firm by 1966.
He was married on 6/25/1955 and has four children.
