|Initially a religious miscellany edited by Henry Ward Beecher, it changed its name after July 1893 and became an influential miscellany of opinion, literary criticism, biography and politics. It is important for its association with Theodore Roosevelt, who was, for a time, an associate editor. This issue is probably the most collectible, by virtue of its exclusive publication of Roosevelt’s address “The Man With the Muck-Rake” which popularized “muckraking” as a term for the sensationalist exposes popular at this time. See: Webster’s Word Histories, Merriam-Webster 1989, pp. 310 – 311.|
