Adventure in Politics is Neuberger's personal story as well as his forceful analysis of what's wrong with our states, politically and governmentally. President Eisenhower had proposed that many of the vast responsibilities undertaken by the Federal government be turned back to the states. Neuberger staunchly opposed this, and presents his case.
He also writes about his wife, Maurine Neuberger, who was then serving as a Representative in the Oregon state legislature (and who later, following the death of Richard, became the fourth woman to be elected to the United States Senate, where she served between 1960 and 1967).
Inscribed by Richard Neuberger to Aaron M. [Meier] Frank (1891-1968), the head of the Meier & Frank department store in Portland for more than three decades. Aaron was promoted to general manager in 1930 when his uncle Julius Meier became Oregon's governor, and when Julius died in 1937 he became the company's president, a post he held until 1964. Under his watch Meier & Frank expanded with additional locations at Salem and Lloyd Center.
Richard Lewis Neuberger (1912-1960) was a liberal US Senator for Oregon between 1955 and 1960 and served in the Oregon Legislature between 1941-1942 and 1949-1954. In the late 1930s he served as the Northwest correspondent for the New York Times. When he won the November 1954 election, he was the first Democrat to do so in Oregon in forty years.
