Introduction
The Morning Bulletin. Rockhampton, Queensland. 22nd January 1927. GHASTLY TRAGEDY. A DESPERATE STRUGGLE. ALECK. VOLLING'S END. LONGREACH, January 21. A ghastly domestic tragedy was enacted in a house in Parrot-lane, at about 7:30 last night, which resulted in the death of Alexander Volling and the frightful wounding of his wife. The terrifying screams of the injured woman, as she rushed from her home aroused the whole neighbourhood.......... The tragedy is most poignant, more particularly so from the fact that it leaves a family of eight children fatherless and their minds will be indelibly impressed with the awful tragedy for many years. It is stated that Volling returned from a droving trip, three days ago. He was out all day yesterday mustering horses and returned about 7 o'clock. On entering his wife's bedroom he saw her getting ready to go out...... The Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald. Queensland. 29th October 1903 Longreach, October 26. Alexander Volling met with a very severe accident yesterday morning. He was trying to bail up a cow, when the cow made a rush, knocking Volling over. His head struck a rail, and the base of the skull was fractured.

In 1891, when he was only 10 years old, on March 14th, a lynch mob stormed the Old Parish Prison. The mob lynched 11 of the 19 Italians who were arrested for - but found to be innocent of - the murder of New Orleans Police Chief David Hennessy.

In 1904, he was 23 years old when the "Teddy's Bear" was first produced. After seeing a political cartoon of President Teddy Roosevelt refusing to kill a clubbed and tied up bear, Jewish Russian immigrant Morris Michtom - who owned a candy shop and sold stuffed animals that he and his wife made at night at the store - made a "Teddy's Bear" and put it in his shop's window. The stuffed bears were an immediate success and Michtom and his wife went on to found the Ideal Novelty and Toy Co.

In 1910, he was 29 years old when the Mexican revolution began. Dictator Porfirio Díaz had ruled for 35 years and was nationally unpopular. When elections were held in 1910 and a rigged election kept Diaz in office. The uprising began - and lasted for another 10 years.

In 1927, in the year of Alexander Volling's passing, the first "talkie" (a movie with music, songs, and talking), The Jazz Singer, was released. Al Jolson starred as a cantor's son who instead of following in his father's footsteps as expected, becomes a singer of popular songs. Banished by his father, they reconcile on his father's deathbed. It was a tear-jerker and audiences went wild - especially when they heard the songs. Thus begun the demise of silent films and the rise of "talkies".
