U.S. Immigration and Ellis Island Series - Genevieve Forbes Herrick - Chicago Tribune

Genevieve Forbes Herrick with the Chicago Daily Tribune posed as a young Irish immigrant girl and "had some remarkable experiences in Ireland and in the steerage before she ran the gantlet of all the terrors of this great American gateway to the United States. She is disclosing what she and her fellow immigrants endured to enter this country. Miss Forbes' experiences bear out fully the charges made against Ellis Island."
