Nevada divorce becomes legal for all...

Item # 627520

December 22, 1942

THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 22, 1942

* Nevada divorce becomes legal (1st report)
* Williams v. North Carolina decision
* United States Supreme Court

The front page has a one column heading: "NEVADA DIVORCES VALID OVER NATION" with subheads. First report coverage on the decision of Williams v. North Carolina divorce case that made it legal to divorce in the State of Nevada from any state in the United States. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with much on World War II. Complete in 46 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.
