Letter bomb sent to Nixon...

The war in Vietnam close to an end...



Item # 629333

October 26, 1972

AKRON BEACON JOURNAL, Akron, Ohio, October 26, 1972 (front page only)

* Hanoi Lists Vietnam Peace Terms
* Letter bombs sent to President Nixon and others intercepted
* Kissinger's work highlighted - earned him a Noble Peace Prize


The front page has several items related to the final days of the Vietnam War:  "Hanoi Lists Nine-Point Peace Terms" (which includes the text of the 9 points), "Kissinger: One More Session To Wrap Up Peace In Vietnam", and the only somewhat related: "Booby-Trap", with a photo of the letter bomb sent to President Richard M. Nixon - intercepted by Israeli Postal workers in Tel Aviv. While the Paris Peace Accord  would not be signed until a few months later, Henry Kissinger's efforts during this period would eventually earn both he and Vietnamese politburo member Lê Đức Thọ a Nobel Peace Prize.
First leaf only, but in very nice condition. Some of the articles continue on inside pages which are not present - however, the leaf is quite displayable.
