Extract from The Scotsman [Edinburgh, Scotland]16 Mar 1917: 5

One hundred years ago today, March 16th 1917, both the Times and the Scotsman led with the headline “Revolution in Russia”. They contained a series of articles giving  first hand accounts of the events leading up to the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II and the resignation of the government.

This is the first of a series of blog posts documenting the key moments of the Russian Revolution in 1917. In October, the University of Glasgow Library  will launch a virtual exhibition marking the centenary of the revolution, which will showcase our extensive collections, including material rarely seen.

UofG staff and students can read the full newspaper reports from March 16th 1917 online by logging into the Digital Archives of both newspapers.
