* Thomas E. Dewey elected New York Governor
This 42 page newspaper has a nice banner headline on the front page: "DEWEY ELECTED GOVERNOR IN STATE SWEEP" with subheads and a nice photo of Thomas E. Dewey. More on the inside pages. Nice to have in this famous New York title.
Other news of the day throughout including a three line headline also on the ftpg: "ROMMEL TAKES RETREAT AFTER SIX-HOUR BATTLE; BRITISH MOVE INTO CLEAR".
Usual browning with minor spine wear, otherwise in good condition.
source: wikipedia: Thomas Edmund Dewey (March 24, 1902 – March 16, 1971) was the Governor of New York (1943-1955) and the unsuccessful Republican candidate for the U.S. Presidency in 1944 and 1948. As a leader of the liberal faction of the Republican party he fought the conservative faction led by Senator Robert A. Taft, and played a major role in nominating Dwight D. Eisenhower for the presidency in 1952. He represented the Northeastern business and professional community that accepted most of the New Deal after 1944. His successor as leader of the liberal Republicans was Nelson A. Rockefeller, who became governor of New York in 1959.
