Biografie

Born to a Quaker family in Indiana, Macy was raised on a farm near Lynnville, Iowa. At age 17 he walked fifteen miles across the prairie to enter Grinnell College. He remained associated with the college for the remainder of his life as a tutor, principal of the Academy, then as a respected professor. From 1885 to his retirement in 1912, he devoted himself to teaching political science and writing many books on political, social, religious, and international subjects. After retiring from Grinnell he travelled abroad more extensively and formed close associations with such people as James Bryce and George Bernard Shaw.
