Ray Stannard Baker
(17 Apr 1870 - 12 Jul 1946)
American journalist and author who was biographer of Woodrow Wilson. After joining the staff (1896) of McClure's Magazine, he gained a reputation, with his colleagues Lincoln Steffens and Ida Tarbell, as one of the leading 'muckrakers.' He later abandoned that style of hard-hitting, crusading journalism.
