Trivia

Arthur Wynne, from Liverpool, England, created, what many consider, the first modern crossword puzzle. It was published in the New York World newspaper on December 21, 1913. It was called "Word-Cross". A few weeks later, due to a typesetting error, the name became "Cross-Word". [Source: Wikipedia]
