Chicago Tribune Annual List of Lynchings nationwide, 1900 to 1910

Documented and compiled by Annika Myrup

The Chicago Tribune has a very detailed account of lynchings across the US from 1900 to 1910. During these 11 years, the Chicago Tribune lists a total of 40 people lynched in Kentucky. Additionally, there is a separate list of lynchings published in hundreds of newspapers across the US (including The Bourbon News, The Chanute Daily Tribute, and Ottawa County Democrat) each year (up until 1904) that doesn’t include quite as many entries as the Chicago Tribune, but sometimes includes details not given in the Chicago Tribune.

The following is a table of the lynchings from 1900 to 1910. Hover over the newspaper title for the link to the articles. (A newspaper.com account is required to view the lists online.)
