Democratic National Conventions: A look back

Pleas for religious toleration in America twice started demonstrations in the Democratic National Convention at its second morning session in 1928. State banners were carried in Parades about the hall, and in two or three instances standards were broken by contending members of delegations. (AP Photo)

About this blog

"Tales from the Morgue" is a way for the Star to share stories from the treasure trove of information held in its old files.

Johanna Eubank, aka the Morgue Lady, was a research assistant in the Star Library — also known as News and Research Services — for 18 years before becoming an online content producer. She has had her share of sneezing fits after digging into dusty old files, so she's sure to find a few old stories to re-examine.
