The death of matador Juan Belmonte...



Item # 584127

April 9, 1962

THE DETROIT NEWS, Detroit, Michigan, April 9, 1962

* Juan Belmonte suicide death (1st report)
* Spanish matador - bullfighter - bullfighting


This 40 page newspaper has a four column headline on page 6: "'Greatest' Bullfighter Belmonte Is Dead at 69" and small photo of Belmonte with caption: "Hemingway's Hero" (see photos). Interesting that this report says a heart attack was the cause of death when in fact he committed suicide by shooting himself. See photos for text here.

Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Small binding holes along spine, otherwise good condition.
