Mencken's column, “The Free Lance”, was published daily in the Baltimore Evening Sun from 1911 to 1915. Mencken became a controversial local figure, taking on such issues as medicine, literature, prostitution, immigrants, the American language, reform, and suffragism. Mencken's columns on Baltimore's public health issues forced him to consider the plight of the city's African-American population, and he began to display a new sensitivity towards the race that he had not shown in his book, Men Versus the Man.
