Kentucky-born George Horace Lorimer (1867-1937) occupied the position of editor-in-chief for The Saturday Evening Post from 1899 to 1936. The paper, which underwent an increase in readership during Lorimer's tenure, is thought to have benefited from his ability to predict the tastes of the middle classes.
