Albert Beveridge (IN-R) is a good example that Progressives during that era aren't necessarily progressives by 21st century standards as you can see from his c. 1901 action. Many progressives during this time ignored the plight of blacks too. Many favored eugenics. Beveridge also is a good example of a Roosevelt Progressive, which is a more nationalist and intervenalist progressivism, as opposed to La Follette progresivism, which was non-interventionist and less nationalistic. Eastern progressives tended to go the Roosevelt route, while Western progressives tended to follow the La Follette route. Ohio and Indiana were kind of caught in the middle.
