Headlines from History: "Dewey Defeats Truman"

Presented by Cantigny Park at Cantigny Park, Wheaton IL

Nov 17 2021
Headlines from History: "Dewey Defeats Truman"

The Robert R. McCormick House at Cantigny Park presents “Headlines from History,” a new series of online presentations. This lecture explores one of the most famous headlines of all time.

Speaker: Sam Rushay, Harry S. Truman Library and Museum

Few headlines in history are as iconic and memorable as “Dewey Defeats Truman,” a Chicago Daily Tribune front-page screamer on November 3, 1948.  Those familiar know it was horribly mistaken. What’s less known is the fascinating story behind the headline. Rushay will discuss its origins and lasting impact—a tale about politics and polls, certainly, but also a compelling human-interest story that still captures our imaginations.
