Norman Hapgood was an editor and critic, best remembered for his influential editorials for Collier's Weekly. Born in Chicago, he had a distinguished tenure as a student at Harvard University, culminating in a law degree. He practiced law briefly, but preferred writing, and became an influential if controversial drama critic. Pressured to leave his job, he became editor of Collier's Weekly, where his vigorous essays on progressive reform helped define the muckraking journalism of the era. Political differences led to his resignation from Collier's, and his subsequent career was of less consequence, including a failed attempt to revitalize Harper's Weekly.

Norman Hapgood (1868-1937), journalist and ambassador, in the early-1920s wrote an exposé on the apparent anti-Semitism of noted industrialist Henry Ford and his newspaper The Dearborn Independent . Through a series of articles entitled, "The Inside Story of Henry Ford’s Jew Mania,” published in Hearst's International, Hapgood hoped to link Henry Ford’s anti-Semitism to the pro-Tsarist movement in the U.S. and Russia. This collection of articles was assembled by Daniel E. Miranda for Brandeis University professor Bernard S. Sobel’s class, “Sociology of Anti-Semitism,” in 1966.
