100 Years Ago Today

If you haven’t already heard, the Library of Congress hosts a great website called Chronicling America that allows visitors to search millions of newspaper articles published between 1836 and 1922. You don’t have to be an historian to realize how cool this is. For example, the website provides a handy little feature that allows users to browse newspapers from exactly 100 years ago. This morning, I discovered the cartoon shown here, which proves that graduates entering the work force 100 years ago faced many of the exact same challenges facing graduates today.  I’ll try to make a habit of posting other centennial cartoons whenever I come across them. In the meantime, feel free to check out the Chronicling America website for yourself.
