Arthur Wynne's Invention: World's First Crossword (1913)

Post by vicked.vicky » Jan 15, 2009 Views: 4250

In 1913, Arthur Wynne had the job of devising the weekly puzzle page for Fun, the eight-page comic section of the New York World, a major newspaper of the time. When he devised what he called a Word-cross for the Christmas edition, published on 21 December, he could have no idea that he would be starting a worldwide craze.
