In 1981 Senator Stevenson’s records filling 961 file drawers were transferred to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library (formerly the Illinois Historical Library) in Springfield where they were organized and catalogued becoming the state’s largest archive. Additional transfers were made in 1986. Since then records, including several hundred speeches and articles, have been maintained in digital form but have not been organized, catalogued and as yet transferred to the Library. Speeches and articles will from time to time be posted on this web site.
Governor Stevenson’s records are maintained by the Seeley Mudd Manuscript Library at Princeton, University, except for documents relating to his years as Governor of Illinois which are maintained at the Illinois Historical Library.
Other family records, including records of Vice President Adlai Stevenson and Jesse Fell (Abraham Lincoln’s patron) are maintained at the Milner Library, Illinois State University, Normal, Illinois. (The University was founded by Fell.)
