Beveridge, Albert J. (Jeremiah)

(1862–1927) U.S. senator, historian; born in Lorain, Ohio. A lawyer by profession, he served in the U.S. Senate (Rep., Ind.; 1899–1911) where he was one of the original "insurgent" Republicans, supporting anti-trust and anti–child-labor legislation as well as naval expansion and imperialist policies. After being defeated for re-election as a Republican, he supported Theodore Roosevelt in the 1912 Progressive Party campaign. He was also known for his historical writings, particularly The Life of John Marshall (1916, 1919).
