Happy Birthday, Upton Sinclair, Muckraking Journalist and Author of "The Jungle"

He was born on September 20, 1878.

Among his notable accomplishments, according to the article above:
. . . nothing Sinclair wrote ever eclipsed the fame of his exposé, “The Jungle.” The 1906 novel was intended to spotlight dangerous and unfair working conditions in turn-of-the-century meat factories. Instead, it inspired a generation of vegetarians and a host of new food safety regulations, including one that ultimately led to the creation of the Food and Drug Administration(FDA).
