Question ID: 442917
i'm doing a project on ECE 1331. the project is to search for a web
page on the world wide web and this page is to concern something that
happened on January 05 1915. The rules are
1) the page must be in good taste
2) the page for the date should contain only information about that
specific date (in this case january 05 1915)-not simply a listing of a
lot of dates.
3) the pate must be in English
4) the page should be in a standard format, not containing large
amounts of graphics/sound/animation or java aplets (cos i need to send
this page as a html file thru e-mail so the person who recieve it can
be easily and quickly view it).
  if u can let me know how to save the page as an html file and not
save just the link cos my prof want the actual file. and how do i
attach this file toa a mail message?

Please visit this link:

where you will find a file named [ chicago trib 1-5-1915.pdf ].

Click on the file, and you can open it up, and/or download to your computer.

It is an image of the front page of the Chicago Tribune for the date
in question, and it seems it should meet your needs perfectly.  It is
in PDF format, which is widely used and accepted, and there should be
no problem emailing it or viewing it.

If, for some reason, I have misconstrued what it is you need, then
please let me know, and I will be more than happy to search for an
alternative file to better suit you.

All the best,


search strategy -- Used access to archived newspaper sites to find
articles from January 5, 1915.

Thanks for your patience on this.  

Here are a few websites that focus on the date in question:

Political Graveyard

Tuesday, January 5, 1915

See the lists on this page for:

...Politicians who died on this date:

...Birthdays of presumed living (at the time) politicians on this date:

Governors of California

Inaugural Address
Hiram Johnson
23rd Governor, Republican

Presented: January 5, 1915

U.S. Supreme Court 

Decided January 5, 1915


These were located with a Google search on [ "January 5 1915" OR "Jan 5 1915" ]

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

It was hard to filter through all the family tree pages - but I did
find this one page.

The article deals with a local landmark that was torn down in Wisconsin.

As for saving an html page - 

- In your IE Browser, at the top of the page - Click File
- Then Save As
- Give the file a name and location you'll remember
- Click Save

The location you saved the file to will now have a File Folder with
the name you gave it. The folder will need to be compressed (WinZip,
WinRar, StuffIt) for you to be able to send it in an email. Once it's
compressed it's just like sending any other document via email.

Hope this helps out!
