Inaugural firsts

Picture 147One of the many fabulous Drake alumni we met this week was Matt Nelson, a May 2012 grad in news-Internet journalism and education.

Matt, of Hibbing, Minn., is now working at the Scripps Howard Foundation Wire, Washington, D.C., as a multimedia fellow. He assembled this interactive infographic on inaugural firsts. At least one Scripps-owned TV station, The Denver Channel, picked it up.

It includes motion picture footage of William McKinley’s inauguration; the texts of several inaugural addresses; newsreel footage; photos; videos; and fun facts.
