Today In Legal (And Literary) History

On September 20, 1878, Upton Sinclair was born in Baltimore, Maryland. Sinclair later became an influential author and social reformer. In particular, his novel The Jungle exposed unsafe and unsanitary conditions in America’s meat-packing industry, and helped to inspire the passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906.
