Title

Loveland Register: Oscar Wilde Convicted (1895)

Subject

Oscar Wilde

Description

An account of the conviction of Oscar Wilde for "gross indecency" in London in 1895, published in the Loveland Register. The account is largely if not completely taken from an Associated Press wire report.

Note the commentary on Wilde's handwriting on the bottom of the article. The commentary seems to offer Wilde's penmanship as corraborating evidence of his crimes and justifies his conviction.
