This chapter chronicles the manner by which data and documents were incorporated into journalism in the early twentieth century, examining the intersection between social movements, progressive politics, public relations, and journalism. It analyzes the MRFM, a religious movement that used the accumulation of empirical data about urban conditions as both a mobilizing and public relations tool in order to advance social causes.

Keywords:   Ivy Lee, MRFM, progressivism, social gospel, social survey
