The San Francisco call - May 15, 1901

 

In an email reply from the McKinley Memorial Library & Museum:

Gary,

In a book entitled "William McKinley and His America" by H. Wayne Morgan, the author mentions that, because McKinley's wife had a blood infection in her finger, the president "rushed her to San Francisco" on Sunday, May 12, 1901 (p. 514.) On p. 515 the author mentions that "by Thursday she could sit up and talk weakly." About four sentences later, Morgan says about the president "For almost another week he remained in the city." I surmise from this that the McKinleys remained in San Francisco until about May 21 or 22 (give or take.)

Sincerely, Frank Pisano Reference Librarian
