About Nellie Bly

Nellie Bly was known to have a constant, infectious smile combined with fierce determination. Brooke Kroeger, states: “In the 1880s, she pioneered the development of 'detective' or 'stunt' journalism, the acknowledged forerunner of full-scale investigative reporting. While she was still in her early twenties, the example of her fearless success helped open the profession to coming generations of women journalists clamoring to write hard news. Bly performed feats for the record books. She feigned insanity and engineered her own commitment to a mental asylum, then exposed its horrid conditions. She circled the globe faster than any living or fictional soul. She was the first woman to report from the Eastern Front in World War I.”
