Adlai Stevenson (1900-1965) was twice democratic candidate for President of the United States and served for five years as ambassador to the United Nations. His primary residence was his farm in Libertyville, Illinois, erected 1938. We are beginning to plan and program for conversion to a scholars' retreat and international relations conference center with an exhibition component honoring the great statesman. The renovation of the sixteen room house restores the major Stevenson living spaces; the stable renovation is planned for a lecture theatre, interpretive exhibit, and support facilities.
