July 1, 1912: The Week Ahead

‘ABDU’L-BAHÁ ARRIVED back in the city late yesterday evening. He’ll stay in New York for just over three weeks before heading up the east coast for a month-long trip to Dublin, New Hampshire and Eliot, Maine.


In the week ahead: a profile of New Yorker Juliet Thompson, Woodrow Wilson wins the Democratic nomination, and fireworks on the Fourth of July.
