1900: Politician and diplomat Adlai Ewing Stevenson II is born in Los Angeles, Calif. Stevenson served as the 31st governor of Illinois and was the Democratic Party's candidate for U.S. president in 1952 and 1956, losing both times to Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower. He also sought the Democratic nomination a third time, in 1960, but was defeated by Sen. John F. Kennedy. After Kennedy was elected, he appointed Stevenson as the ambassador to the United Nations, a position he held from 1961 until his death in July 1965.
