Item # 630256
May 5, 1931
THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 5, 1931
* Susan Glaspell - playwright, actress
* Margaret Ayer Barnes - novelist
* Pulitzer Prize winners for journalism
The front page has a one column heading: "TWO PULITZER PRIZES ARE WON BY WOMAN" with subheads. (see) First report coverage continues inside with photos of the winners. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 56 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.
