Muckraker's HOF - Lincoln Steffens

No idler, he read everything and studied at universities throughout Germany and France.

Theodore Roosevelt called muckrakers.

During nine years of New York City newspaper work ending in , Steffens discovered abundant evidence of the corruption of politicians by businessmen seeking special privileges. Many nationwide lecture tours won Steffens recognition. He raised rather than answered questions, jolting his audience into awareness of the ethical paradox of private interest in public affairs by comic irony rather than by moral indignation.
