Doubleday) of the publishing house of Doubleday, Page and Company (later Doubleday and Company). He also founded the magazine The World's Work which he edited until 1913.
He was a strong supporter of Woodrow Wilson for president and later became Wilson's ambassador to Great Britain (1913-1918). Page was an early supporter of the US entrance into WWI and he urged Wilson to forego neutrality and enter the war.
