1920 New York Times Front-page Editorial

1920 NYT Front-page Editorial

The New York Times ran a front-page editorial Saturday urging tougher gun control laws.

The last time the paper ran an editorial on the front page was in June 1920, when it lamented the nomination of Warren Harding as the Republican presidential candidate.

Harding served as president from 1921 to 1923, and his term in office was fraught with scandal, including Teapot Dome. But he was credited with embracing technology and showing sensitivity to the plights of minorities and women.

He died of a heart attack during a trip to San Francisco in August 1923.
