"Government was meant to be exploited, to advance the individual and aid the machine. The machine offered its followers material success without insisting upon middle-class morality. It accepted the immigrant as he was, asking only that in return for aid he surrender his vote. William Lorimer (1861 - 1934) carefully built such a machine from the precinct level upward, extended his alliances throughout Chicago, and established himself as a force with which three Republican presidents had to reckon. For nearly two decades in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries he was one of the most powerful and controversial figures in Illinois politics."; 7" - 9" Tall
