THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 18, 1937
* Mount Rushmore National Memorial
* Abraham Lincoln sculpture unveiled
* Keystone, South Dakota
This 36 page newspaper has small and somewhat discrete one column headings on page 21: "Lincoln Head Unveiled", "5,000 See Dedication at Dakota 'Shrine of Democracy'" which is a first report on the dedication of Abraham Lincoln's granite sculpture at Mount Rushmore, near Keystone, South Dakota. My guess is that the Times was one of the very few newspapers to report this event giving the small, inside page report here.
Other news, sports and various advertisements of the day throughout including period advertisements. Rag edition in great condition.
