Louise Michel (1830-1905) was active in the Paris Commune and as a result was deported to New Caledonia in 1873, returning to France in 1880 after the Communards were granted an amnesty by the government. She continued to preach revolution and was impisoned for three years on two occasions, as well as spending a period in exile in England. Still touring France making speeches advocating the anarchist cause, she died in her hotel room in Paris in 1905. Her funeral drew huge crowds. In 1946 a station on the Paris Metro was named after her. A photograph from Album de Photographies dans L'Intimite de Personnages Illustres, 1855-1915, 8th album, Editions MD, Paris.

Italian athlete Dorando Pietro arrived at the stadium alone in the lead but, suffering from exhaustion and dehydration, he collapsed on the track in a state of disorientation. Officials helped him up and pointed him towards the finishing line which, after falling four more times, he eventually crossed in first place. The last 350 metres of the race had taken him 10 minutes to complete. The American athlete Johnny Hayes finished second and the US team registered a protest at the assistance Pietri had received from the officials. Their protest was upheld and the Italian was disqualified. A print from Olympia 1936, Die Olympischen Spiele 1936, Volume I, Cigaretten-Bilderdienst, Hamburg, 1936.
