The Oct. 1, 1910 bombing of the Los Angeles Times killed 21 people

The Oct. 1, 1910 bombing of the Los Angeles Times killed 21
people

In its recent newsletter, the Society of Professional Journalists
has taken the opportunity to remind us about the Oct. 1, 1910 bombing of the Los Angeles Times building.

The 1910 bombing of the Los Angeles Times has been the
subject of books and film. By CAROLINA A. MIRANDA SEP 22, 2017 http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/arts/miranda/la-et-cam-esotouric-los-angeles-times-bombing-20170922-story.html

The weapon: 16 sticks of dynamite and a windup alarm clock.

The target: The old Los Angeles Times building, an 1886
brick-and-granite edifice known as "the fortress," on Broadway and
First Street, across the street from where The Times is located today.

The bomber: J.B. McNamara, who was linked to an ironworkers
union that ordered the attack — part of a radical bombing campaign to go after
anti-union strongholds in the early days of the 20th century.

Twenty-one people died in the early hours of Oct. 1, 1910,
when the explosive device ripped an entire wing off The Times building. A night
editor and a telegraph operator were among the dead, and dozens of others were
wounded and maimed. A report published in The Times two days after the incident
described the scene as an "awful pit of death."

Heralded as the "crime of the century," the
bombing has been the subject of books (such as "Deadly
Times"
by Lew Irwin) and it has figured in documentaries (Peter Jones'
"Inventing L.A.: The Chandlers and Their Times").
