Horace Greeley (1811-1872)
Newspaper Publisher and Editor
Horace Greeley was born in Amherst, New Hampshire. This prominent American newspaper publisher founded and edited the New York Tribune. The Tribune was a combination of two of Greeley’s previous publications, The New-Yorker and The Log Cabin. Greeley was a leader in the anti-slavery movement. During the 20 years before the Civil War, Greeley played a major role in shaping American public opinion. He sponsored experiments in cooperative living, including the founding of Greeley, Colorado, in 1869. This utopian community flourished, partially due to Greeley’s insistence that settlers have solid finances.
