Today is the birthday of American author, politician and socialist Upton Sinclair, a career muckraker who exposed corruption wherever he found it. He wrote about industrialized America during the Progressive era and felt keenly the harsh working conditions and exploitation of the working class, particularly immigrants. He was the Democratic Party candidate for Governor of California in 1934 during the depression era promising to end poverty, but was defeated by the Republican incumbent.
