After losing the 1952 presidential election, Adlai E. Stevenson II was approached by Look Magazine to travel to 30 nations in 6 months and report on the social, political and economic conditions in each. Learn more about this unique and fascinating journey through stories, photographs, and hands-on activities.

We often hear that we can learn larger lessons from the past, but what can we learn from the lives of historic figures that we can apply in our own every day lives. In this series we will explore the various ways that we can learn from both the triumphs and the failures of those who came before us, which will help us better understand our shared human experience.
