    As the cataloguer of this clip suspected, this is indeed footage of the funeral procession of Woodrow Wilson, (I've managed to match up stills from this clip with photographs taken on the day).

    The clip's current issue date of 15/09/24 must be incorrect though, as the funeral took place on 6th February 1924.
