   Julius Chambers was borned in 1850.He was died in 1920.He was journalist and travel writer.
  Julius Chambers is considered by many to be the original muckraker who undertook a journalistic investigation of Bloomingdale Asylum in 1872,His intent was to obtain information about alleged abuse of inmates. When articles and accounts of the experience were published in the Tribune, it led to the release of twelve patients who were not mentally ill, a reorganization of the staff and administration of the institution and, eventually, to a change in the lunacy laws. This later led to the publication of the book A Mad World and Its People (1876).
