Scope & Content The item is a newspaper clipping that features information and hand drawn pictures of William McKinley. The newspaper entitled Sunday Magazine Woman's World was a supplement of The World newspaper. The newspaper was copyrighted by the Press Publishing Co. 1898. The clipping is designed into three picture panels. The first is some type of parade possibly the inauguration with a round picture of McKinley on the day of his nomination to the presidency. The second panel shows McKinley standing with one hand behind his back and one hand extended forward with a hand writing on a desk below it. It includes the caption, "The presidential hand, caught by snap-shot on the ledge of private secretary Porter's desk in the anteroom to the executive office in the White House." The third panel shows a backdrop of the capitol with a round picture of McKinley looking significantly older and below it a picture of the lines of the President's palm.
