Item # 590880

February 2, 1948

LEOMINSTER DAILY ENTERPRISE, Massachusetts, February 2, 1948 

* Mahatma Gandhi's assassination 
* Herbert Reiner Jr.

This 8 page newspaper has a two column headline on the front page: "Report H.S. Graduate As First To Reach And Hold Gandhi Assailant" with subheads: "Ex-Lancaster Man Stationed At new Delhi"

A interesting report that tells of Herbert Reiner Jr. being the man that held Gandhi's killer at bay until police could take over. It says in the article that he was a graduate of Leominster High School in 1933.

Other news and advertisements of the day throughout. Minor spine wear, otherwise good condition.
