The Spider In The Clock

In 1932 a spider achieved overnight celebrity status, with the media producing daily reports of its adventures. It's the curious case of the 'spider in a clock.'

The spider's rise to fame began on the morning of November 20, 1932 at 552 Parker Ave in Barberton, Ohio. Louise Thompson rolled over in bed, turned off her alarm clock, and then noticed a 'tiny black dot' moving across the face of the timepiece.
