Ray Stannard Baker, Woodrow Wilson’s friend

May 19, 2013 | By Jim Stovall | Filed in: history.

The current PBS American Experience program is a two-part biography of Woodrow Wilson, one of America’s most important presidents. Mentioned in the series is journalist Ray Stannard Baker, a progressive journalist who promoted Wilson’s candidacy for the presidency and who became his good friend.

As with most PBS programs, there is an excellent companion web site that has information about people important in Wilson’s life. Baker is mentioned there, too, with an expecially good link to more about his life. Read more about Baker in this article by Robert C. Bannister. The second part of the broadcast is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 3.
