Memoir of Pat Deluhery, former Iowa state senator and assistant for U.S. Sen. Harold Hughes from 1968 to 1974. Author covers his high school days in Davenport, Iowa; his education at Notre Dame and the London School of Economics; working on Hughes' campaign for the Senate in 1968 and his time in D.C.; his legislative accomplishments during his 24-year tenure in the Iowa Senate; and how 19th century Iowa became 20th century Iowa. Deluhery also looks at what life was like for his Irish Catholic family in the 1940s and 1950s; the Catholic Church's social justice message; and his encounters with John, Robert and Ted Kennedy along with several other notable Democratic politicians of the era.
