  3. Pilot Project: How was Rasputins Assassination Reported in Print Media?
    List
    Public

    The question for my pilot Project is: How Was Rasputins Assassination Reported in Print Media? The main archival collection I used for my main research was the Trove database. I searched for newspapers between the period 1916-1918. Trove provided articles from newspapers such as 'Leader' (8), 'The Sydney Morning Herald' (3), 'The Register' (9), 'Daily Standard' (10), 'Zeehan and Dundas Herald' (11), 'Daily Post' (6), and 'The Australasian’ (7). Another archival collection I used for my research was the Times Digital Archive database which provided an article from 'The Times' (2). I also used Getty Images (4), and Simplicissimus (5) as other archival collections. I accessed my scholarly secondary source (1) through the University Of Wollongong library database. My question sets to explore the ways in which different forms of print media such as newspapers reported the murder of Rasputin. The main time period I am focusing on for this question is between December 1916 when Rasputin died, until the end of 1918. It is from this time period in which the majority of the print media from this list has been sourced. In this short two year window, the way in which Rasputins assassination was reported transformed in such a way that at first it was just seen as a suspected murder (2) until it became a story about Prince Yusupov inviting Rasputin into his house and then murdering him after shooting a dog (3, 8, 9, 11). Variants of this latter story was present in the majority of newspaper articles sourced. The material in this list can help me answer my question because my can be used to compare the ways in which Rasputins Assassination was reported in print media. Once murder was established as the cause of death (2), many of the newspapers use the story of murder as the sole focus with all newspapers reporting a similar account of Rasputins murder. While not newspaper articles the photo (4) and the comic (5) can also be used to answer my question. The post mortem image of Rasputin can also be used to verify claims made in these articles namely that he was murdered. The fact that in the image he has ropes tied around his arms after being found dead in the river means it is likely that he had in fact been murdered. This is because nobody just falls into a frozen river for no reason while their hands have been restrained. The headline of the german comic translates as “Rasputins Murder” and shows is a non verbal report that asserts Rasputin was in fact assassinated, further verifying claims made in these newspaper articles that he was murdered. The secondary source (1) can also provide an indication as to how people in the present day believe Rasputins assassination occurred. While offering new facets of the story to how Rasputin was assassinated like Rasputin ingesting poisoned cake and wine, the secondary source also repeats some information that was reported on in the primary sources like the fact he was shot by Prince Yusupov further validating newspaper reports.
