ABSTRACT
This article presents information on politics of Alaska and politician Adlai Stevenson. Alaskans had not met Adlai Stevenson previously, at least not in the way that Americans in general did during the 1952 campaign. The Territory had no television stations at that time, so the Stevenson personality was something new. Alaska, whose general election is to be held in October, has never failed since residents of the Territory first obtained the right to elect a Delegate to U.S. Congress in 1914, to show the way the national trend would go.
