100 Years Ago Today

A History Of Events And Happenings From Exactly One Hundred Years Ago

Postmarked June 21, 1912

The Dreamland Pavilion in Seattle, Washington is a large venue used for dances, boxing matches and even political speeches.

The Knights of the Maccabees is a fraternal organization founded in 1878 in London, Ontario, Canada. It served as a benevolent “legal reserve society.” Families of deceased members received benefits in the form of legal-reserve insurance. Woodmen of the World was a similar organization founded in 1890 in Omaha, Nebraska for the same purpose of providing insurance benefits for its members.
