The publishing enterprises of Samuel Sidney McClure (1857-1938) are an important facet of early twentieth-century American journalism. The McClure Syndicate, started by Samuel Sidney McClure in 1844, was the first successful company of its kind, and was largely responsible for introducing many American and British writers to a national audience. He later venture, McClure's Magazine, contained the influential "muckraking" articles of Ida Tarbell, Ray Stannard Baker, and Lincoln Steffens; it also had the distinction of promoting the then-unknown writer, Willa Cather.
