Headlines in 1912

posted in: 1912 | 0

While at the library conducting genealogical research, I scanned some of the 1912 newspaper microfilms available. Below is just a small sampling of the headlines. Of course in April and May there were numerous articles on the Titanic disaster. The end of the year provided an overabundance of political and election related headlines. All three of the candidates {Roosevelt, Taft, Wilson} received considerable coverage. I was reminded scanning the headlines that results were not immediately known as they are today. Results had to wait until all of the ballots were tallied.
