Quick Reference

(1874–1952), journalist who is best known for Our Times: The United States, 1900–1925 (6 vols., 1926–35), a survey of the American scene, divided into eras studied both in their large events and in the more informal matters that helped mold contemporary opinion. His autobiography, The Education of an American (1938), deals with his youth in Pennsylvania, schooling at Harvard, muckraking journalism with such magazines as McClure's and Collier's, and militant liberalism in behalf of the early Progressive party, and carries the account of his life to his mid-forties, after which he became a conservative Republican.
