100 Years Ago Today

A History Of Events And Happenings From Exactly One Hundred Years Ago

Portrait Of Crusading Author

Reginald Wright Kauffman was born in Lancaster Pennsylvania in 1877. He attended Harvard and became a reporter for the Philadelphia Press and an associate editor for The Saturday Evening Post. He wrote several books that dealt with social issues including HOUSE OF BONDAGE (1910) a frank examination of prostitution in America and one of the first to attempt to present this problem in a non-moralistic manner.


On August 27, 1912 photographer Elias Goldensky of Philadelphia took this portrait of Kauffman.
