Julia S. Tutwiler, “The Upton Sinclair Fast Cure for the Mind”
Posted on Monday August 10, 2020
Julia Strudwick Tutwiler was a celebrated educator, prison reformer and temperance advocate. As an educator, Tutwiler had tried to lead her students toward lives of reason, moderation, and self-control. In a 1911 letter to the Montgomery Advertiser, Tutwiler presented "The Upton Sinclair Fast Cure for the Mind," which offered her psychological insight based on Sinclair's Fast Cure. In the process she recounted stories of her own student days in Germany, c. 1873-1876. This led to her account of the German authorities' attempts to censor newspaper editors. In Miss Julia's mind, one interesting story usually led to another, not necessarily related story.
