Max Baginski

Max Baginski (1864 – November 24, 1943) was a German-American anarchist.

Baginski was born in 1864 in Bartenstein (now Bartoszyce), a small East Prussian town. His father was shoemaker who had been active in the 1848 revolution and was thus shunned by the conservative inhabitants of the village. Under his fathers influence, Baginski read freethinker August Specht's writings and Berliner Freie Presse, Johann Most's newspaper, in his youth. After school Baginski became his father's apprentice.

Already a staunch socialist, Baginski moved to Berlin in 1882. He emigrated to the U.S. in 1893. From 1894 to 1901, he was an editor of the Chicago Worker newspaper. He helped publishing the 1906-07 issues of the magazine Freedom and editorials for the anarchist magazine Mother Earth in New York.

This is a quote from the first issue of Mother Earth Magazine.

Baginski died at Bellevue Hospital in New York on November 24, 1943.
