The beginning of the embargo against Cuba...
Item # 616609
October 20, 1960
DETROIT FREE PRESS, Oct. 20, 1960
* United States embargo against Cuba begins
The bold, banner headline announces what has since become an extremely significant event in United States foreign relations, the embargo against Cuba: "CASTRO COLLAPSE FORESEEN" "U.S. Boycott 'Means Chaos in Cuba' " with subheads including: "Fidel Given Year or Less" "U.S. Cuts Off Exports to Cuba". These reports carry over to inside pages.
Complete in 40 pages, disbound, a library stamp in the middle of the headlines & in the upper right corner, otherwise generally nice.
