Making the rounds on Facebook is this New York Times clip from March 5, 1903, reporting events from the morning of March 4, 1903. The Times and some other sources refer to the freelance dentist as “Johnson,” but his name is John Simonson in other accounts.
With thanks to Tony Dierckins, below is the version of the story that ran in the March 4, 1903 edition of the Duluth Evening Herald.
Below are two more clips on the same topic. The first is from The Minneapolis Journal, March 4, 1903. The second is from volume 11 of the Pacific Dental Gazette.
