Synopsis

In cooperation with The Western Reserve Historical SocietyProduced shortly before his death in 1911 and long since out of print, provides a rare personal insight into the career and philosophy of one of the most prominent figures of the American progressive Era. Influenced by the single tax proposals of Henry George, Johnson gave up a prosperous business career to become a reform politician. He was elected first to the U.S. House of Representatives, then served as mayor of Cleveland from 1901 to 1909, instituting sweeping reforms. His championship of municipal ownership, professional management of city departments, and broad public involvement in government makes Johnson’s mayoral administration one of the most celebrated in Cleveland’s history, as well as a focal point for scholars studying the Progressive Era.
