THE PARSONS SUN, Parsons, Kansas, January 3, 1967
* Jack Ruby dies while waiting on death row...
* Hard-to-find same-day reporting
* Slayer of Lee Harvey Oswald... assassin of JFK
The front page reports of the death of Jack Ruby, which includes a photo, supporting text, and the 3-column, 2-line headline: "Death Takes Ruby; Slayer of Oswald." Another related front page article is headed: "Insistence to the Last: No Part of Conspiracy."
Other news of the day is present throughout. Complete in 10 pages and in very nice condition. The left margin does have (typical) binding holes (see images).
Finding authentic newspapers from the late 1960's is difficult as most institutions were microfilming and disposing of their holdings rather than storing them.
