Wednesday, March 8: Neighbor and Nemesis: Ida Tarbell takes on Henry Huttleston Rogers
When Ida Tarbell was a little girl, she and Henry Rogers were neighbors near Titusville, Pennsylvania—one of the towns where Standard Oil put small operators like her father out of business. She grew up to be a muckraking journalist whose research and reporting led to the breakup of the Standard Oil Trust.
