In this era of instant information it is difficult to realize that at the turn of the century people eagerly sought monthly magazines for details about corruption in government, the venality of corporations and the corrosive influence of economic monopolies upon the body politic. That was the era of the Muckrakers, a term applied by Theodore Roosevelt and taken from Pilgrim's Progress.
