ABSTRACT
This article focuses on Alexander Wiley, the man who succeeded Senator Arthur Vandenberg as ranking Republican on the Foreign Relations Committee. When Alexander Wiley was elected to the U.S. Senate from Wisconsin almost 14 years, ago, back in 1938, the Associated Press in its brief dispatch described him as one of Wisconsin's better-known Kiwanians." In fact that summed up the, man. It was Kiwanis that pushed him into big league politics. "During 1933 and in the midst of that depression," says his biographical memo, "he devoted a full one fourth of his time, touring his district so as to bolster the lagging spirits of his fellow Kiwanians and other Americans.
