The Lynching Records: 1885 - 1912 (New York Times, 1913)

A report from THE NEW YORK TIMES stated that, relative to the population, 1912 saw a drop in the number of lynchings. Included in this brief is a record of lynchings that occurred between the years 1885 - 1912.

Charles Lindbergh: American Hero (Literary Digest, 1927)

"'Truth is stranger than fiction' is an old writer's saw that the pen plodders know and the general reader doubts. But that truth and fiction may be one and the same thing in comes to light in the story of Charles Lindbergh's flight. No fiction writer could have contrived a story more perfect and right in it's details...In a few short days an unknown lad has become the hero of the world. His name is on the lips of more people than any under the sun. His face etched in more minds than any living human. The narrative question of the story, 'Will he make it?' is on everybody's lips, from President to beggars."

''When Women Rule''(Vanity Fair, 1918)

Some well-chosen words by L.L. Jones, one of the many forgotten Suffragettes of yore, who looked longingly to new day:

"So far as political equality is concerned I believe I could adjust myself quite readily to a society governed by United States presidentesses, State governesses, and city mayorines, alderwomen, chairwomen, directrices, senatresses, and congresswomen, and I believe I should be just as happy if clergywomen preached to me, doctrices prescribed for me, and policewomen helped me across the street, and chuffeuresses ran the taxis which on rare occasions I can afford to take."

Read a 1918 article about the women's city.

New York Exhibit for Le Corbusier (Art Digest, 1946)

A brief art review from 1946 announcing an exhibition of paintings, drawings, photographs, architectural plans and models by the modern architect Le Corbusier (né Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris, 1887 – 1965) at the Mezzanine Gallery in Rockefeller Center.

"Along with Ozenfant, Le Corbusier invented Purism. The earliest painting in the collection, and the only one of that period (1920), which is familiar to art audiences as part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art."

A Look Back at the Berlin Air-Lift (Pathfinder Magazine, 1949)

"Last week, after the Russians announced they would lift the blockade on May 12 [1949], the airlift took a bow and added a modest nod at the 324-day record:

• 189,247 flights;

• 1,528,250 tons delivered;

• best day's work: April 16 with 12,947 tons hauled in 1,393 flights.

- [and if the West had not chosen to answer the Soviet challenge in Berlin] "there might never have been an Atlantic Pact or a Western German state. The Communists might have gone amok in France and Italy. Russia might have won the Cold War in the first heat."

King's March in Washington (United States News, 1963)

Although the attached article is indeed about the famous civil rights march on Washington that took place in August of 1963, the journalist made his primary concern the political gains and losses that remained after all was said and done.

Dinner with Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford (Literary Digest, 1922)

At the time this this column was penned, Los Angeles was largely seen as a man-made heaven that smelled of Orange blossoms, however this writer will have none of it; he was dispatched to the nascent Hollywood to interview the inmates of "Pickfair" (the recently divorced movie stars Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks) and he found the city to be an unholy mixture of puritans, frauds, posers, hucksters and lousy restaurants - in short, the place was just plain dull and there's no hope for it's future (the writer also insisted that the city as film capital was all washed-up). The writer, Karl K. Kitchen, was delighted to expose his colleagues in journalism to be the liars everyone always suspected them to have been - for writing about Hollywood as if it was such an exhilarating and aesthetic utopia:

"Mr. Kitchen speaks of his stay in the [Los Angeles] suburb as the length of his 'internment'... For just as as an oil-well may be described as a hole in the ground owned by a liar, Hollywood may be described as a collection of bungalows and motion picture studios written about by liars."

The Woman Who Didn't Want to Dress Like Jackie... (Coronet Magazine, 1961)

This unique (and thankfully humorous) voice lets us know how widespread "The Jackie Look" was in the America of the early sixties - but she will have non of it:

"I am accepting all offers - including Confederate money - for my Jackie Kennedy wardrobe of sleeveless 'avant-garde' dresses and pill-box hats. I'll even throw in a necklace or three of pearls. If you insist, and I hope you do, I'll also add my French cookbook and my water-color set... I have had it. I just don't want to look like Jackie Kennedy. The competition is becoming far too keen."

We recommend: Jackie Style

Stalin Dies and Power Changes Hands (Quick Magazine, 1953)

Stalin's death on March 5, 1953 generated a tremendous amount of uncertainty in the West, and a good deal of it is reflected in the attached column. A list of possible successors was provided; two of the names played an immediate roll in the governance of the Soviet Union: Georgy Malenkov (1902 – 1988) - who ruled for three days, until he was replaced by Nikolai Bulganin (1895 – 1975). Bulganin ran the shop until he, too, was replaced by Stalin's right-hand man: Nikita Khrushchev (1894 – 1971) - who was known in some corners as "the hangman of the Ukraine".

The Birth of Airline Food (Coronet Magazine, 1945)

"Newton Wilson, a modest, quiet, somewhat academic man who never leaps before he looks through, in and around a situation, became the 20th Century innovator of precise recipes; a sort of Fanny Farmer of flying."
