Chicago Evening Post
The Chicago Evening Post was a daily newspaper published in Chicago, Illinois, from March 1, 1886, until 1932, when it was absorbed by the Chicago Daily News. The newspaper was founded as a penny paper during the technological paradigm shift created by linotype; it failed when the Great Depression struck.
The Evening Post identified itself as a reform newspaper, and attempted to cover muckraking stories of Chicago's political corruption. Among its managing editors was the future director of the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, Michael W. Straus.
