dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this paper is to study the contribution of the popular press to the development of heroic images of American public figures at the turn of the century. By 1900, the magazine business expanded very rapidly so that more magazines were sold for a wide variety of prices. They were so numerous that they represented all classes and groups in society; some better than others. Lower class magazines are the least represented in the study because many lower class groups tended to read newspapers instead of magazines. Using a balanced sampling of expensive upper class magazines, middle class magazines, and some newspapers, this paper examines the public images of people who were commonly featured in popular magazines.en_US
