Question of the Day

Oct 09, 2014

Yesterday's question asked (with special thanks to Matthew Delman for submitting it): Which muckraking reporter got admitted to a mental institution for a story? Provide both the real name and the pen name to receive credit! That would be Elizabeth Jane Cochrane, better known as "Nellie Bly."

Congratulations to Sara Jacobson of Edelman for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable laurels are also extended to Ken WalkerAshley M. ApodacaDan RosenbaumCraig PittmanJohn WallHollywood HighlandsJillian ChertokMarilyn ParelEdirin Oputu, and Annie M. Dance for getting that right, as well!
