Image of a photograph of Albert J. Beveridge, historian and politician, from The Outlook magazine (published on February 11, 1920, at pg. 248).

Wanting to become a Senator from Indiana, Beveridge gave a campaign speech (on September 16, 1898) which included these words:

It is a noble land that God has given us; a land that can feed and clothe the world; a land whose coastlines would inclose half the countries of Europe; a land set like a sentinel between the two imperial oceans of the globe, a greater England with a nobler destiny.

In other words, the future Pulitzer-Prize winner wanted America to duplicate (or better) Queen Victoria’s British Empire.
