Bombing of Los Angeles Times Building, 1910
Brothers and labor leaders John and James McNamara admitted to bombing The Los Angeles Times building in 1910, and killing 21 workers. The press played up their Irish roots, according to historian Kristofer Allerfeldt, although their motivations seemingly had little to do with their ethnicity. The event also furthered national concerns over the radicalization of the American labor movement.
