Herbert Croly

Herbert Croly

I was born on January 23, 1869, in New York. Both my mother and my father were journalists. My fathers name is David Croly and my mothers name is Jane Cunningham. Some of my early on goals included graduating from Harvard University, and becoming a well-known journalist, both of which were later achieved. After graduating from Harvard University, I became the editor of Agricultural Record. In 1909, I published the book titled The Promise of American Life. In this book I stressed several of my political views, such as the need for a planned economy, increased spending on education, and a society based on “brotherhood of mankind.” Many people believe that this book influenced Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. In 1914, a good friend of mine by the name of Williard Straight, asked me to be the first editor of the New Republic. When the New Republic was first published in November 1914, only 875 copies were made. After
