ISBN: 0252024141 OCLC: 38024068 University of Illinois Press, Urbana : ©1998. Recently discovered in the archives of the Dirksen Congressional Center, this is the memoir Senator Dirksen was writing at the time of his death in 1969 - and his gravel-voiced warmth and wisdom come through on every page. Covering the years of his boyhood through his election to the Senate in 1950, The Education of a Senator reveals the foundation of a great public servant in the making.
