Brendan Carberry's insight:

9/27/1912 NEW YORK, NY--Many of now heard of the up-and-coming movie book creator with the name Baron Ashkenazy. A glaring example of the American dream who through hardships, has found his way to the top of the wealth circuit. Baron Ashkenazy started out as a rubbish Jewish immigrant barely surviving in New York City. At one point his former spouse went into a form of prostitution to support the needy family. Her whereabouts are unknown. It was only when he went on a rip with his daughter that he figured out how profitable selling movie books was. The rest is history. Ashkenazy has gone from a nobody immigrant to spending his summers on the shores of Atlantic City, New Jersey with his new wife and 2 of her kids, one of which is the famed 'buried baby'. Baron describes it as "something he never thought could happen" and added "this is a great country".

Baby Found Buried

Baby Found Buried | Metropolitan Buzz - Most Notable Articles of 1912 | Scoop.it

This is the only picture provided of the toddler. He is now in good spirits.

Brendan Carberry's insight:

3/27/1902 NEW ROCHELLE--Yesterday, a young toddler was found buried outside of a woman's house. She was outside as she started to hear a faint noise coming from the garden. The lady soon dropped to her knees and started to dig. At this moment her son and housemaid rushed outside to her assistance. To their utter surprise, the mother had dug up a young child. The baby was black, barely breathing and still had its umbilical cord attached. The authorities were immediately notified and the mother was found within hours. The mother was  a very young Negro woman and was overcome with emotion when she saw her child. The woman who found the child described the experience as "a horrific nightmare." She continued to say that "her motherly instincts came to her when she first found the baby." These motherly instincts also came out later as the family is going to take in the young woman and baby until further notice.

Nesbit Dissed By Goldman

Nesbit Dissed By Goldman | Metropolitan Buzz - Most Notable Articles of 1912 | Scoop.it

Nesbit, 28, has been in the news a lot lately.

Brendan Carberry's insight:

3/25/1912 NEW YORK, NY--During one of her socialist meetings, speaker Emma Goldman put out some words that may have not settled to well about the purdy Evelyn Nesbit. She said that Evelyn used her sexuality to gain prominence. Reactions were mixed as some people got up and left the center while others had total agreement. One woman called it a "true but unneeded comment", another called it a "popularity showing" for Goldman, and another called it "something that needed to be said". Nesbit was seen with Goldman later, but the structure of that conversation is unknown.
