Chicago Evening Post
The Chicago Evening Post was a daily newspaper published in Chicago from March 1, 1886 until 1932. The newspaper was founded as a penny paper during the technological paradigm-shift created by the invention of linotype technology, and failed during the Great Depression. It was absorbed into the Chicago Daily News.
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.
