About Author

Upton Sinclair

Upton Beall Sinclair Jr. was an American author, sleuth, political organizer, and writer who was born September 20, 1878, and died November 25, 1968. He was the Democratic Party's candidate for governor of California in 1934. He put together almost 100 books and other types of writing. In the first half of the 20th century, Sinclair's writing was well-known and liked. In 1943, he won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Sinclair became famous in 1906 for his classic muck-raking novel, The Jungle. This book showed how dirty and unsafe the U.S. meatpacking industry was, which caused a public uproar that helped pass the Pure Food and Drug Act and the Meat Inspection Act a few months later. He wrote a dirty book about American journalism called "The Brass Check" in 1919. It brought attention to the problem of "yellow journalism" and the limits of the "free press" in the US. Henry Ford's rise to power, including his "wage reform" and the Sociological Department at his company, is told in The Flivver King. It also talks about Ford's fall into antisemitism as editor of The Dearborn Independent. In the coal fields of Colorado, King Coal talks to John D. Rockefeller Jr. about his part in the Ludlow Massacre the year before.
