McKinley was the third US President to be assassinated. He was killed in September of 1901 by Leon Czolgosz at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York. McKinley was greeting visitors who were in line to meet him when Czolgosz approached him with a bandage on his hand. Inside the bandage was a pistol and he shot McKinley twice in the stomach. McKinley died of his wounds eight days later. Czolgosz claimed that the government was evil and sick and should be dismantled from the top down. He was tried, convicted and executed in the electric chair.
When he died in 1901, he left the bulk of his estate, valued at $200,000 to his wife Ida. He provided a $1,000 lifetime annuity to his mother, but since she had already died, it passed to his sister Helen.
She was injured in a train accident in 1901 that ended her career with William F. Cody's (Buffalo Bill's) Wild West Show.
He and his wife Jeanette had their first child in 1901.
His father, Lee Hoi Chuen (b. February 1901, died 8 February 1965) was a popular stage actor, and died 8 days after Brandon Lee was born.

Was told by his English namesake, Winston Churchill, "Why don't you get into politics? I mean to be Prime Minister of England one day. I think it would be a great lark if you were President of the United States at the same time!" The American Winston was elected to the New Hampshire legislature two years afterward (1901) and later made a run for governor, but was unsuccessful.
She had at least one sibling, a sister identified in historical records only as Mrs. Harold O. Wright. This is believed to be Hazel McConnell Wright (1901 - 1989), born in Tennessee.
Her tombstone mistakenly gives her date of birth as 1901 rather than 1898.
Studied law at Howard College but dropped out after six months to pursue theater in New York, making his debut in 1901 and performing in numerous Southern melodramas.
He was the obvious choice for the first Nobel Prize in Literature in 1901, but one of the Nobel judges criticized his "narrow-minded hostility to all forms of civilization." The conservative panel instead gave the award to the French poet Armand Sully-Prudhomme, whose works have not stood the test of time as Tolstoy's have.
Received rave reviews in the Stephen Sondheim Tony-winning revival of "Assassins" for his portrayal of Leon Czolgosz, who assassinated President William McKinley in 1901.

At Giuseppe Verdi's funeral in 1901, Toscanini conducted a performance of "Va, pensiero" (The Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves), which ensured Verdi's success when it was first performed (it is from his opera "Nabucco").
