Adlai Stevenson II, 5th United States Ambassador to the United Nations (b. 1900-1965), was an American lawyer, soldier, politician, and diplomat, noted for his intellectual demeanor, eloquent public speaking, and promotion of progressive causes in the Democratic Party. Stevenson served in numerous positions in the federal government during the 1930s and 1940s, including the Agricultural Adjustment Administration (AAA), Federal Alcohol Administration, United States Department of the Navy, and the United States Department of State. He also served on the committee that created the United Nations, and was a member of the initial US delegations to the United Nations. He was the 31st Governor of Illinois from 1949 to 1953, and received the Democratic Party's nomination for president in the 1952 and 1956 elections. On October 25, 1962, Stevenson displayed photos at a meeting of the United Nations Security Council proving that Soviet missiles were installed in Cuba. His remarks from that meeting to the Soviet Ambassador to the UN have become emblematic of the cold war: "Do you, Ambassador Zorin, deny that the U.S.S.R. has placed and is placing medium- and intermediate-range missiles and sites in Cuba? Yes or no - dont wait for the translation - yes or no"; when Zorin replied that Stevenson would get his answer "in due course", Steven riposted "I am prepared to wait for my answer until hell freezes over, if thats your decision.".
