Pics and Bios of The Victims in Philadelphia Press

Post by Karen on Tue 29 Mar 2011 - 9:41

The N.Y. Tribune gave a picture of the late General S.C. Armstrong as a portrait of Clarence A. Seward, and Seward's picture as Armstrong. Both happened to be well-known men, therefore the error was detected, and the journal apologized. General Armstrong was head of the Hampton Institute for the education of negroes which has been of much service to the nation, especially to the South. He was able to triumph over prejudice as a Union soldier and a member of the Republican Party, and he established the institution in Virginia soon after the war ended. Lately he combined with that work a similar training for Indians, and was thus enabled to "scatter over the South and West thousands of each race who bear the impress of his inspiring and uplifting spirit." But to return to the pictures. The Philadelphia Press printed portraits and biographies of the seven women killed by "Jack the Ripper," all fictitious; but what the reader seems to require is something "sensational," whether false or true.
