President McKinley's funeral cortege at Washington, D.C ( Visual )
4 editions published in 1901 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From a contemporary Edison film company catalog: PRESIDENT McKINLEY'S FUNERAL CORTEGE AT WASHINGTON, D.C. Ungodding. [code for telegraphic orders]. When photographing the funeral of President McKinley we secured an excellent position at the foot of Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C., having had the exclusive right for animated picture apparatus inside the lines. Our camera is focused looking up Pennsylvania Avenue and shows countless thousands of mourning people who line the streets along the way. As the funeral procession which accompanies the body of our martyred President approaches, our camera is set in motion and pictures of the marching multitude who pay the last tribute to President McKinley at our National Capitol are recorded in the following order. The line is headed by a troop of U.S. Cavalry, followed by detachments of heavy artillery [end of part 1]; then comes the Loyal Legion, followed by G. A. R. detachments, made up of both Federal and Confederate veterans. Next in order comes the Guard of Honor [end of part 2], who are in turn followed by the hearse, which is drawn by six black-plumed and black-netted horses. Inside the hearse can be seen the flag covered casket. The light and color of the procession is suddenly gone; spectators silently bow and bare their heads. The pageant has suddenly been transformed into a funeral cortege. Our position was so excellent that as the hearse passed our camera a distinct and life-size view was procured, showing this vehicle of sadness in all its detail. The hearse is closely followed by the Admirals of the Navy and the Generals of the Army. Next in order come the carriages of the family and the relatives, and then the carriage of President Roosevelt, which is drawn by four black horses. Next come the carriages which contain the President's Cabinet, the Diplomatic Corps, Chief Justice Fuller and Associate Justices, Senators, Congressman, Governors of States and Government Officials. These carriages are followed by the United States Marine Band, which forms a most imposing spectacle as it marches slowly and solemnly to the strains of "Nearer My God to Thee." Following the United States Marine Band and in step with the slow funeral march comes the National Guard of the District of Columbia and sailors from United States Battleships, clad in their natty uniforms and jackey hats. The sailors and soldiers are marching sixteen abreast and make a very imposing spectacle as they pass our camera [sequence from the Marine Band to sailors appears in part 2]. The procession having passed, the crowd immediately surges toward the Capitol, intent on securing a place in the line that they may enter the rotunda and look upon the face of the illustrious President McKinley. Our panoramic device is then set in motion and a most perfect and interesting picture is secured as an ending to the Washington film. The picture shows the immense crowds surging toward the Capitol, and as rain begins falling at that moment tens of thousands of umbrellas are raised for protection. Our camera having been above the heads of the people, a most novel effect is secured. As the camera rotates, the base and steps of the Capitol are brought into view and the crowd is shown crushing and struggling for entrance to the rotunda. One of the most perfect of the McKinley funeral pictures. Class A 350 ft. $52.50. We also furnish a 75 foot strip of the above, showing the crowds at the Capitol. Class A Ungodily. $11.25
President McKinley reviewing the troops at the Pan-American Exposition ( Visual )
4 editions published in 1901 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From a contemporary Edison film company catalog: PRESIDENT McKINLEY REVIEWING THE TROOPS AT THE PAN-AMERICAN EXPOSITION. Ungloomed. [code for telegraphic orders]. The President is seen on the reviewing stand at the Stadium, escorted by President Milburn, of the Pan-American Exposition, Secretary Cortelyou, and other noted persons. He removes his silk hat as the troops march by and politely bows to the great audience as they cheer and encore. President McKinley and party form the left foreground of our picture while the troops march by in the right foreground. From this excellent position we thus secured perfect pictures of both the Executive and his troops. Class A 85 ft. $12.75
Funeral leaving the President's house and church at Canton, Ohio ( Visual )
4 editions published in 1901 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From a contemporary Edison film company catalog: PRESIDENT McKINLEY'S BODY LEAVING THE HOUSE AND CHURCH. Ungowning. [code for telegraphic orders]. In this picture we show a most perfect view of the front entrance of the McKinley home in the background. The hearse which is to bear the President's body to its last resting place drives into view. President Roosevelt's Cabinet forms in line on either side of the walk. The Admirals of the Navy and the Generals of the Army form lines in their rear. President Roosevelt takes his place at the head of the Cabinet and immediately the body emerges from the front door, borne on the shoulders of the soldiers and sailors. As it passes through the lines of Diplomats, Admirals and Generals, all heads are uncovered. The sailors and soldiers descend the steps slowly to the sidewalk and then the body is placed in the hearse. Here we secured another life size view. The hearse starts slowly away and President Roosevelt and his Cabinet walk toward their carriages. Then with the aid of our panoramic device we followed the hearse until it passed slowly out of view down Market Street. This scene dissolves into a picture of the body leaving the church at Canton borne on the shoulders of the sailors and soldiers and placed again in the hearse. From the time the casket appears at the church door it does not pass out of the view of our camera until the doors of the hearse are closed upon it. We follow it constantly with our panoramic device, and the views are perfect and life size. The hearse finally starts away for the cemetery, followed by the famous Black Horse Cavalry, Troop A, of Ohio. Class A 200 ft. $30.00
President McKinley's speech at the Pan-American Exposition ( Visual )
4 editions published in 1901 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From a contemporary Edison film company catalog: THE PRESIDENT'S SPEECH AT THE PAN-AMERICAN EXPOSITION. Unheedful [code for telegraphic orders]. In this picture we present a wonderful and life-like likeness of President McKinley. He first walks upon the platform, escorting Mrs. McKinley, whom he very reverently shows to a seat. The President is next introduced to the audience by President Milburn, of the Pan-American Exposition, and, amid hand-clapping, cheering, and waving of hats, he at once begins his memorable speech. He is close to our camera and we secured an absolutely perfect photograph. Class A 75 ft. $11.25
President McKinley taking the oath ( Visual )
3 editions published in 1901 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From a contemporary Edison film company catalog: PRESIDENT McKINLEY TAKING THE OATH OF OFFICE. This picture opens by showing the Diplomatic Corps, accompanied by Admiral Dewey and General Nelson A. Miles, coming down the carpeted stone steps of the Capitol and going to their seats in front of the stand where the President speaks. Next come the members of the President's Cabinet, and they are followed closely by President McKinley, preceded by Sergeant-at-Arms Ransdell of the Senate, bare headed and one armed, and also accompanied by the joint committee of Congress, composed of Senator Mark Hanna, of Ohio; Senator Spooner, of Wisconsin; Senator James K. Jones, of Arkansas; Representatives Cannon, of Illinois; Dalzell, of Pennsylvania, and McRae, of Arkansas. The President then steps promptly to the front of the stand amid the cheers of the immense crowd who stand with heads reverently uncovered, filling the entire foreground of our picture. As the tumult ceases, Chief Justice Melville W. Fuller, in the black silk robes of his high office, steps forward and holding in his outstretched hand a small Bible, administers the oath of office. The oath taken, the President presses his lips to the Bible and with manuscript in hand, immediately begins his speech. Again the valuable and exclusive privileges granted us by the United States Government allowed us to place our camera within fifteen feet of the President when he took the oath of office. We regret that we were unable to secure a longer film than listed above, but the rain began falling in torrents with almost the first words of the President's speech, which of course prohibited our taking a greater length of film, but notwithstanding the fact that it began sprinkling before the President took the oath of office, the fifty feet of film which we did secure is good
Execution of Czolgosz, with panorama of Auburn Prison ( Visual )
4 editions published in 1901 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From a contemporary Edison film company catalog: ELECTROCUTION OF CZOLGOSZ. . A detailed reproduction of the execution of the assassin of President McKinley faithfully carried out from the description of an eye witness. The picture is in three scenes. First: Panoramic view of Auburn Prison taken the morning of the electrocution. The picture then dissolves into the corridor of murderer's row. The keepers are seen taking Czolgosz from his cell to the death chamber, and shows State Electrician, Wardens and Doctors making final test of the chair. Czolgosz is then brought in by the guard and is quickly strapped into the chair. The current is turned on at a signal from the Warden, and the assassin heaves heavily as though the straps would break. He drops prone after the current is turned off. The doctors examine the body and report to the Warden that he is dead, and he in turn officially announces the death to the witness

3 editions published in 1901 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From a contemporary Edison film company catalog: PRESIDENT McKINLEY AND ESCORT GOING TO THE CAPITOL. This most excellent picture was secured at the junction of Pennsylvania Avenue and Fifteenth Street. The parade is headed by a platoon of mounted police; next comes the Grand Marshal, Major- General Francis V. Green, and staff, as follows: A. Noel Blakeman, Lieut. Col. John S. Johnson, Major-General N.E. Thompson, U.S.A., Brigadier-General U.S.W. Day, U.S.V., Lieut. Winfield S. Overton, U.S.A., all mounted on splendid horses. Next come the famous Troop A, of Cleveland, Ohio, who act as the personal escort of the President. They present a most striking appearance as they go down the incline on Fifteenth Street, Washington. Next comes President McKinley in his carriage drawn by four of his own horses, the pair of blacks in the lead and the favorite bays on the wheel. The President is seated in the right of the carriage with Senator Hanna on the left beside him, and facing them, with their backs to the driver, are seated Representatives Cannon and McRae. Owing to special permits granted us by the United States Government, we were able to have our camera within twenty feet of the President's carriage when it passed, and an absolutely perfect photograph was secured. The President's carriage is followed by Secretaries Hay and Gage. The third carriage contains Secretary Root, Attorney-General Griggs and the President's Private Secretary Cortelyou. The fourth carriage contains Secretaries Long, Wilson, Hitchcock and Postmaster-General Smith. The fifth carriage contains Lieutenant-General Miles and Admiral Dewey. We also present excellent pictures of the Admiral of the Navy and the General commanding the United States Army as they pass. This picture closes up by showing a detachment of Veterans of the Twenty-third Ohio Volunteers, followed closely by the West Point Cadets, who present a remarkable spectacle as they execute left wheel turning from Fifteenth Street into Pennsylvania Avenue
