Summary/Abstract: A description of the press, publishing, journalistic and editorial activities of Augustyn Wróblewski, an outstanding chemist and biochemist, who in the middle of 1905 founded a press publication entitled Purity, “a non-party biweekly, devoted to the issues of fighting prostitution and harlotry.” The journal in a way became an outlet for Wróblewski’s radical views on social issues, portraying him as a missionary of ethical transformation, a social reformer and a defender of those rejected and excluded.
