June 28, 2020 ⁠—Historical Doppelgangers

“Peter Steadman, the ‘City’s Best Known Terrier Lost,’ Mrs. W. J. Hosfelt Jr. nee Susan Mullen and more fun doppelgangers from the newspaper pages of U. S. history. For example, in 1917: ‘New Haven, April 26. ⁠— Miss Katherine Mullen, New Haven county organizer of the state suffrage association, and one of the most active women leaders in this section of New England, was attacked and brutally beaten by what is supposed to be a New York gangster on the Seymour turnpike, a half mile west of that place, Tuesday afternoon…’ OK, and on the other hand, there is the ‘Miss Raven Beauty Contest’ from the 1970’s. Enjoy!”
