As we kick off our centennial year celebrations, we wanted to take a look back at the ways that the world has changed since the ABA Journal produced its first issue in January 1915. After all, when we first went to press, World War I was less than six months old; the Lusitania was still afloat; Czar Nicholas II and his family were still alive and ruling Imperial Russia; and the modern states of Pakistan, Israel, Ireland and Bangladesh (among many others) had not yet been formed.
