Newly discovered newspaper articles about Swami Vivekananda
with the editor's comments in red.
This is an interesting obituary of Vivekananda, inasmuch as it refers to the "fame" he had as a result of being "lionized" by "society." It contradicts some of the opinions of the so-called "corrective" biographers of Vivekananda who like to write that Vivekananda was virtually unknown to the American people. If nothing else, this and other documents he was known by a considerable number of people (judging him from a distance) as a "fad". Of course, those who knew him personally seem to have an entirely different testimony of his impact on their lives.
