    Interesting Trivia: Murders by Gun, 1910

    In 1910, US population was about 100 million. Either the number of murders by gun - or the number of murders period with any weapon (can't remember) was a REPORTED 210.

    ("REPORTED" in 1910 is a lot different than "reported" now. Likely quite a few murders did not reach a central administrative body for inclusion in totals.

    Still interesting...

    ________________________________________________

    Unrelated: in 1910, the total population of Nevada was under 10.

    And last: in 1910, women on average washed their hair once a month and most used Borax + Eggs.
    (ick!)

    (Maybe this was especially true in Nevada which explains why few lived there.)

    According to the U.S. Census for 1910 the population of America was 92,228,496. 1910 United States Census - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia I'll bet that changes the murder rate also.

    In 1910, the US population was 92,000,000. Nevada's population was slightly less than 82,000.
