Adlai Stevenson visiting Bloomington, 1953.

In September 1953, Adlai E. Stevenson (right) spent five days in Bloomington, his boyhood home, visiting friends and family. Earlier this week we posted another photo from this visit.
During those busy five days Stevenson, a former Illinois governor and Democratic presidential nominee, got in two rounds of golf. He’s seen here with John Brokaw (left) and Laurence Rust (middle). They are at the 10th tee. Stevenson, by the way, shot a 41 on the back nine. There was no mention of his score on the front nine.
