Item # 632879
October 15, 1932
THE NEW YORK TIMES, October 15, 1932
* Jessie Bonstelle death (1st report)
* American theater director & actress
* Katherine Plunket death (1st report)
* Oldest born native person from Ireland (all time)
The top of page 15 has a one column heading: "JESSIE BONSTELLE, ACTRESS, IS DEAD" with subheads and photo. (see)
Also on the same page is: "KATHERINE PLUNKET DEAD AT AGE OF 111" with subheads. (see) I suspect this is one of the few publications to report these deaths as other titles in our inventory do not.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 34 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.
