Robert La Follette's autobiography, 1913

La Follette's autobiography; a personal narrative of political experiences


Robert La Follette's autobiography traces his political life and accomplishments from his election as district attorney for Dane County in 1880 to the presidential campaign of 1912. Focusing on the tactics and strategies of politics rather than on his personal life, La Follette emphasizes his crusade against the powerful business interests that he felt exerted too much influence on both state and national government.
