"In his four-year tenure from 1912 to 1916, Newton D. Baker fostered Tom L. Johnson's ideal of a Utopia of Civic Righteousness. He coined a new word to designate his polity; it was 'civitism,' once described as a combination of 'Home Rule and the Golden Rule for Cleveland.' Baker believed that the greatness of a city did not depend on its buildings, either public or private, but rather the intensity with which its citizens loved the city as their home." - from Newton D. Baker: A Biography by C.H. Cramer
