THE DETROIT NEWS, Michigan, February 10, 1960.
* Coors Beer baron kidnapped

This 40+ page newspaper has a one column headline on the front page: "Kidnap Fear Spurs Hunt for Brewer" with a photo of Adolph Coors III. Other news of the day throughout. This issue has some margin wear which does affect some of the mentioned article. Also small binding holes along the spine.
source: wikipedia: Adolph Coors III (January 12, 1916February 8, 1960), was the grandson of Adolph Coors and heir to the Coorsbeer empire. Victim of an attempted kidnapping by Joseph Corbett, Jr. in Colorado in 1960, Coors died and a national manhunt for Corbett was launched. Corbett was captured in Vancouver, British Columbia in October of that year.

Coors was a graduate of Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire. Like most of his family, including brother Joseph Coors, Adolph graduated from Cornell University, where he was president of the Quill and Dagger society.

Ironically, Coors was allergic to beer.
