Today -100: August 3, 1918: Of karelias, blimps, and gorkies


Germany tries to bribe Finland with Eastern Karelia (which would be grabbed from Russia) if it quickly establishes a monarchy.

The US Navy breaks the record for a blimp remaining in the air. 30 hours. Evidently I didn’t notice when the word “blimp” was coined a couple of years ago.

Maxim Gorky is ordered arrested (although I don’t think it ever happened) and his newspaper suppressed.
