Some of the photos above, and ALL of the photos to follow were taken from an old heavy photo album owned by Cornelia Boersema
The following clipping was tucked inside this old album. Cornelia had lived in El Paso for years by 1953 so someone in Chicago had to have sent her this article. Was she related to the folks in the article or was it sent because of human interest??
This photo of William McKinley was also inside the album. It is printed on heavy cardboard. Were these elaborate photos distributed to the American public due to the fact that McKinley was murdered?
