In 1889, Beveridge was elected to the U.S. Senate and served six terms as a Senator. In 1911, he returned to Indianapolis where he pursued his literary and historical interests. The most ambitious product of these endeavors is The Life of John Marshall in four volumes. He made an unsuccessful bid for the Indiana governorship as a Progressive candidate in 1912, losing to Samuel M. Ralston. In the same year, he was the chairman of the National Progressive Convention at Chicago. He died on April 27, 1927, in Indianapolis.
