Biography: George Creel was an investigative journalist, a politician, and, most famously, the head of the United States Committee on Public Information, a propaganda organization created by President Woodrow Wilson during World War I. He said of himself that an open mind is not part of my inheritance. I took in prejudices with mother's milk and was weaned on partisanship.
