Snyder, Oklahoma Territory: Tornado Kills 125 In 1905
Sorting through piles of papers to decide what to keep and what to dispose of, donate, or give away I ran into a highly deteriorated copy of the Saturday June 3, 1905 Collier's The National Weekly. I wanted to share part of it while is was still readable.
Here are three pictures and a short cut-line about a tornado that hit Snyder on May 10, 1905.
125 people were killed in the cyclone.
