Ida Minerva Tarbell
b. 11-5-1857; Erie Co., Pennsylvania
d. 1-6-1944; Bridgeport, CT

Ida Tarbell, known as one of the leading “muckrakers”, or investigative journalist, of her day, is best-known for her 1904 book The History of the Standard Oil Company. She also wrote magazine series and biographies, and was a school teacher.

Ida Tarbell quotes ~
• “Imagination is the only key to the future. Without it none exists – with it all things are possible.”
• “Rockefeller and his associates did not build the Standard Oil Co. in the board rooms of Wall Street banks. They fought their way to control by rebate and drawback, bribe and blackmail, espionage and price cutting, by ruthless ... efficiency of organization.”
• “Perhaps our national ambition to standardize ourselves has behind it the notion that democracy means standardization. But standardization is the surest way to destroy the initiative, to benumb the creative impulse above all else essential to the vitality and growth of democratic ideals.”
• “How defeated and restless the child that is not doing something in which it sees a purpose, a meaning! It is by its self-directed activity that the child, as years pass, finds its work, the thing it wants to do and for which it finally is willing to deny itself pleasure, ease, even sleep and comfort.”
