* President Woodrow Wilson's engagement

This 14 page newspaper has a three column headline on the front page: "President Woodrow Wilson to Wed Mrs. Norman Galt of Washington" with subheads and photo (see photos). This is 1st report coverage on the engagement of President Woodrow Wilson to Edith Bolling Galt.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Light browning, a little margin wear, otherwise good. Should be handled with care.

wikipedia notes: Edith Bolling Galt Wilson (October 15, 1872 – December 28, 1961), second wife of U.S. President Woodrow Wilson, was First Lady of the United States from 1915 to 1921. She has been labeled "the Secret President" and "the first woman to run the government" for the role she played when her husband suffered prolonged and disabling illness after a stroke in October 1919. Some even refer to her as "the first female president of the United States."
