THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 8, 1934
* John Dillinger gang
* Tommy Carroll killed
Page 3 has a one column heading: "DILLINGER'S AIDE IS SLAIN IN IOWA" with subheads and photo. (see) First report coverage on American bank robber Tommy Carrol being shot & killed by police. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 4 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.
