AS WE KNEW ADLAI

Festschrift is a lovely word and we seldom get to use it because so little is issued on general trade lists. However, that's exactly what this is, a complimentary, memorial collection of essays written by friends of Adlai Stevenson recalling him as a boy, a young man, a lawyer, a politican, a governor, a diplomat... All are cordial and regretful and indicate how much this manysided man continues to be missed. The contributors include: Ralph Bunche, John Sparkman, George Ball, Barbara Ward Jackson, and many other close friends and associates. It's not much competition for Lillian Ross' recent sensitive portrait, but until the full dress biographics come along to mine it, this will provide a source of insight and anecdote.
