Title Page9
Description IT BEGAN AT A MEMORABLE TIME Labor Day was made a legal holiday in 1893. And in Corsicana, Texas oil was discovered by drillers searching not for petroleum but water. Samuel F. Clemens, whose pen-name, Mark Twain, had become world famous, published one of his several books that year, titled "Pudd'n Head Wilson." Whitcomb L. Judson, a clever Chicagoan, patented a metal contraption which closed an opening in fabric with a simple tug of thumb and finger - and reopened it just as easily. The device which would alter clothing design for decades to come was given the name "zipper" and button manufacturers thereafter witnessed a steady decline in demand for their products. And in Richmond, Virginia the Hotel Jefferson was opened, complete with electric lights and two toilets on each floor. Unfortunately, the Jefferson was later destroyed by a fire traced to the electrical wiring. The State Department, seeking to give proper recognition to its representatives in foreign lands, introduced the title "Ambassador," conferring it upon delegates in five important foreign countries. Those were the headline stories when Utah Press Association came into existence in 1893.
