the most influential American labor leaders of the 20th century,
was officially reported missing after he failed to return home
the previous night. Though he is popularly believed to have

The American Weekly
was a
Sunday newspaper supplement
published by the
Hearst Corporation from November 1, 1896,
until 1966. The name was changed to Pictorial Living in 1963
before it was finally cancelled in 1966. Due to the low quality
of the paper on which it was printed, many issues have been
lost despite the large circulation. As a result, it has become
a collectors item.
