Question of the Day

Nov 26, 2013

Yesterday’s Question of the Day asked … Ida Tarbell’s investigative work that eventually brought down Standard Oil was published in how many parts by McClure’s? That answer would be a whopping 19!

Many felicitations to Edward Tenner for being the first reader to tweet in correctly! Honorable mentions also go out to @.l.interpretationsCraig PittmanRachel RohKaren P. Graham and Jessica Becher for also getting the answer right! We'd also like to mention Carol Reynold's awesome reference to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: "The answer to everything is 42."

Your question of the day for today is ... In what magazine did David Graham Phillips write his series of articles called "The Treason in the Senate," in which he attacked members of the government?
