THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 18, 1929
* Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina
* Wright Brothers National Memorial cornerstone
* Kitty Hawk monument unveiled
Page 18 has a one column heading: "HONOR THE WRIGHTS AT KITTY HAWK SITE" with subheads that include: "Monument Is Unveiled" "Cornerstone Also Laid for the Memorial to Be Built by the Government" and more. Text takes up over two full columns. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 64 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. A little irregular along the spine, nice condition.
