Joe Louis becomes Champion in 1937...



Item # 629574

June 23, 1937

THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 23, 1937
 
* Joe Louis wins World Boxing Heavyweight title
* James Braddock in defeat (early 1st report)

The front page has one column headlines that include: "LOUIS KNOCKS OUT BRADDOCK TO TAKE WORLD RING TITLE" "60,000 Watch Brown Bomber Stop Champion in Fight at Comiskey Park" " Bout Ends In 8th Round" and more. (see)
Much more sport's section (page 30) with related photo and round by round description. This was Joe Louis' 1st time as heavyweight champion. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 52 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. Nice condition.
