The Liberator was a monthly magazine established by Max Eastman and his sister Crystal Eastman in 1918 to continue the work of "The Masses", which was shut down by the wartime mailing regulations of the U.S. government. It was a journal which combined astute radical political coverage of events of the day, fine art, poetry, and some of the best left-wing political cartoons in the history of American journalism. Due to failing finances, the magazine was turned over to the Workers Party of America circa 1922. Robert Minor became editor of the Liberator, while Max Eastman continued as a member of the editoral board, joined by Charles Ruthenberg, James P. Cannon, Claude McKay and Lydia Gibson, among others. Socialist Party luminaries including Eugene Debs, Helen Keller, Crystal Eastman and Art Young acted as associate editors. [cite journal
