Harry S. Truman nominated in 1948.....

Item # 626385

July 15, 1948

THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 15, 1948.

* President Harry S. Truman nominated
* Democratic Party acceptance speech

The front page has a nice banner headline: "TRUMAN, BARKLEY NAMED BY DEMOCRATS; SOUTH LOSES ON CIVIL RIGHTS, 35 WALK OUT; PRESIDENT WILL RECALL CONGRESS JULY 26" with many subheads and related photos. Much more on following pages including Truman's acceptance speech.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 48 pages, 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. Very nice condition.
