Dec. 20, 1910: The Times reports on the distribution of money that was donated by the people of Los Angeles for families of The Times bombing victims. Although some modern writers insist The Times was a hated institution in this era, the amount of money collected for the families indicates a fair degree of support and sympathy. For example, $2,992.96 [$68,056.36 USD 2009] was given to Leola Harvey-Elder, the widow of Assistant City Editor Churchill Harvey-Elder, who died of his injuries after leaping from the burning building.
