Description

New York: Hamilton Books. Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. 2005. First Edition. Hardcover. Autograph; 256 pages; Clean and secure in original binding. Inscribed and signed by the author on the titlepage "October 2007 / A Story about an elegant lady / for an elegant lady / Affectionately / Albert" Catherine Eddy Beveridge's life was a window to some of the most important historical events and personalities of her time. The Chronicle delivers a highly insightful and unmatched perspective of social and political life in early twentieth-century America. Detailing her life and travels from the period spanning 1902 through 1908, and her marriage to Senator Albert J. Beveridge of Indiana, Catherine's world spanned Chicago, Indiana, Washington, D.C., and Europe. Her social standing and friendships offer a unique look at some of the most prominent and important personalities of the time, including Theodore Roosevelt, Henry James, the Marshall Field family, Kaiser Wilhelm II, and Russian Emperor Nicholas II. The book is engagingly written in the biographic style and concludes with a "Dramatis Personae," in which the authors provide a complete list of the notable figures mentioned in the text--more than 350 personalities. Catherine's personal comments for each entry combine to make the "Dramatis Personae" a unique and very valuable historical account that cannot be found in any other resource. The Chronicle of Catherine Eddy Beveridge will be of special interest to historians and libraries in Illinois and Indiana, as well as a valuable resource for professors, students, and devotees of early twentieth-century American history. PROVENANCE: Rowland Evans was a provocative newspaper columnist, commentator and author who antagonized liberal politicians and championed conservative causes. He left Yale and enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1942 during World War II and was discharged in 1944 because of malaria. In 1963, Mr. Evans and Mr. Novak began writing ''Inside Report,'' an insider's view of politics that was published four times a week until Mr. Evans retired in 1993. Mr. Evans and Robert Novak began their work as columnists in the early 1960's, a time when newspaper columnists wielded outsize influence in national politics. The pair pioneered in transferring that influence to the medium of cable television with the political discussion program ''Evans & Novak'' -- carried on CNN from that cable network's beginning. Rowland Evans and his wife Kay (Katherine Winton Evans), also a respected writer and editor, were mainstays on the Washington social scene, hosting many memorable gatherings in their handsome Georgetown house -- to which flocked influential and remarkable people drawn from journalism, politics and general society over the decades from the 1960s to the 2000s. Both Evans and Novak became more predictably conservative over the years, particularly during the Reagan years. Reportedly, both columnists voted for JFK in 1960 and for Lyndon Johnson in 1964. Evans earned a place on Richard Nixon's infamous "Enemies List." Novak reported that Evans had JFK as a guest for the first dinner party the latter attended as President Elect. Kay and Rowland Evans has a particularly close friendship with Robert F. Kennedy, his wife Ethel and their family. .
