Knox College - Galesburg, IL

  • Minor

Knox College has a long and close relationship with American journalism, particularly that strand of fearless investigation and public advocacy that we know as the "muckraking" tradition. The line of distinguished alumni journalists starts with Ellen Browning Scripps, Class of 1860, syndicated columnist and co-founder of several important American newspapers. It includes Samuel S. McClure, Class of 1882, founder with several other Knox alumni of McClure's Magazine and publisher of all the famous Muckrakers; and John Huston Finley, Class of 1887, longtime editor-in-chief of The New York Times. A fourth important Knox-related figure, Carl Sandburg, won two Pulitzer Prizes, for his biographical work on Abraham Lincoln and for his poetry.
