About Res Publica

Res Publica was founded on September 18, 1787, by Dr. Saul Thompson Bacon, an alum of Harvard University and former editor-in-chief of the campus paper, the very day after the ratification of the United States Constitution. His commitment to quality journalism has led one of America's oldest newspapers to provide only the best news Americans could ever ask for during our most troubling times.

Fellow Compatriots,

It is my civic duty and greatest honour as an American, born of the profoundest political revolution known to man, to offer to my fellow countrymen the most thorough and honest press coverage for which our great First Amendment affords us our valued privilege. It is my dearest hope that my audiences feel more enlightened of the world's affairs upon having finished reading our publications than when they started.

— Saul T. Bacon, Res Publica Founder & First Editor-in-Chief, 1790
