McClure's Magazine, an American literary and political magazine, was founded in June, 1893, by Samuel McClure, an Irish ÈmigrÈ who, in 1884, established one of the first newspaper feature syndicates in the world. Selling at a low price throughout its run, this illustrated magazine published the work of leading popular writers such as Rudyard Kipling, Jack London and Arthur Conan Doyle. In 1902, the magazine began to specialize in what became known as muckraking journalism, requiring its writers to gather real hard evidence as well as people’s personal experiences in their columns and exposÈs. Sales of the McClure's Magazine declined in the 1920s and the last issue appeared in March, 1929. Linson, a Brooklyn-born magazine and book illustrator, presents the two faces–with and without beard–of iconoclastic political stoicism for the magazine’s pictorial analysis of America’s 16th president.
