|Jacob August Riis (1849-1914), list of works|
|Jacob Riis immigrated to the United States from Denmark at twenty-one. Employed as a reporter for the New York Tribune, he became a bold reformer of the squalid conditions endured by residents of New York City's tenements. Riis's expository work How the Other Half Lives won such widespread attention that many improvements on slum life were enacted as a result. Riis's memoirs, The Making of an American, describe his immigration and his quest in journalism.|
