His successes as a legislator (agricultural legislation, vocational education, work on the Bricker Amendment) and later in his role as a major authority on foreign policy made him a leader in the Senate.

This is the first definitive history of the SoCon, utilizing many rarely-before-seen photos, researched via official league records and minutes, and filled with features and highlights in an easy-to-read format.
