В 1913 г. напечатан первый кроссворд

Readers of the Sunday supplement to The New York World newspaper found there 32 questions which answers were to be carefully filled into special boxes provided by the edition. The author of it was Arthur Winn, a journalist who had emigrated to New York from Liverpool. In search of new ideas, he recalled his childhood entertainment when his grandfather prepared a puzzle called “a magic square or double acrostic.” Arthur edited the idea a bit and left his trace in history as now this crossword puzzle is considered the first published one.
