Annie in the Echo

There have been a number of articles about Annie Moore over the last week or so, ranging everywhere from the New York Times to Washington Jewish Week. I especially enjoyed the latest pair by Ray O'Hanlon in the current issue of the Irish Echo:

Putting things right

If only Annie could have seen this

These are a follow on to last week's There's more to Annie, and for those who are curious about Annie herself, Mr. O'Hanlon does the most thorough job of explaining the research trail and results (I did a bit of a show-and-tell with a PPT presentation at the press conference, and he was actually able to make sense of the meadering trail).

And yes, for those who have been asking, I will write something myself, but for the moment, I'm still playing catch-up. Here's hoping this troika of articles will satisfy your curiosity in the meantime!

Thanks for the links to the Irish newspaper - they did it pretty well.

They even got your name right!

Cheers -- Randy

I have a question rather than a comment-you probably don't have time to answer but I'll give it a shot. I am an archives MLIS student writing a paper on the Annie Moore mix-up and am confused about how the wrong Annie's story became historical record. How did the elderly relative's version of events become official? If this happened around the time of the bicentennial, what was the accepted version before that? Thanks for your illuminating work!
