Albert Jeremiah Beveridge

Beveridge, Albert Jeremiah (bĕvˈərĭj) [key], 1862–1927, U.S. Senator from Indiana (1899–1911) and historian, b. Highland co., Ohio. He was admitted to the bar (1887) and practiced law (1887–99) in Indianapolis. As a Republican Senator, he supported the policies of Theodore Roosevelt. With other Insurgents he opposed the Payne-Aldrich Tariff Act (1909) and was defeated for reelection (1910). He became (1912) an organizer of the Progressive party, ran (1912) for governor of Indiana on the party's ticket, and lost. Thereafter he devoted himself principally to writing history. His thorough, sober lives of John Marshall (4 vol., 1916–19) and Abraham Lincoln (unfinished; 2 vol., 1928) are outstanding.
