Whirlaway wins Kentucky Derby...



Item # 625889

May 4, 1941

THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 4, 1941

* Whirlaway - horse racing
* Kentucky Derby win (1st of 3 wins)
* Triple crown winner


The front page of the sport's section (inside) has a nice banner headline: "70,000 WATCH WHIRLAWAY TAKE DERBY IN RECORD TIME" with subheads and related photos. (see) This was the 1st of 3 historic wins for the famed horse in the quest for the triple crown.  Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in a 100+ page Sunday edition, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Nice condition.
