Alexandre Lion’s storefront incubator charities got quite a lot of coverage in the US press in the late 1890’s, as can be seen by the next few articles, and he even had a branch in New York City for a while. After Martin Couney gets rolling with his incubator exhibits at the Trans-Mississippi Exposition in 1898 and the Pan-American Exposition in 1901, and the many to follow, nearly all the US press coverage pivots to Couney, and Dr. Lion essentially disappears from the US press.
