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.
