Event Description: “The Mind Must Be Convinced” tells the story of Ida Tarbell, the investigative journalist whose work helped break up the Standard Oil Company monopoly. Labeled as one of the “muckraking” journalists of the early 20th century, Tarbell resented the title and preferred to view herself as an historian. As can be seen from her works, she was more interested in uncovering truth than in promoting any particular political agenda. She believed “the mind must be convinced” by facts rather than emotion or sensationalism, if positive and permanent change was to come.
