Media historians considered Hudson's history, Journalism in the United States from 1600-1872 , to be the authoritative text for the study of the development of American journalism, a subject previously neglected by American historians. The work has remained an important source for modern day scholars. Hudson [1819-75] became known as 'the father of journalism' for his innovative news-gathering practices and was managing editor of the New York Herald, which by the outbreak of the Civil War was the most widely read newspaper in the United States.
