THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 2, 1933
* Scottsboro Boys rape case
* Haywood Patterson death sentence
The front page has a one column heading: "SCOTTSBORO NEGRO AGAIN CONDEMNED" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on Haywood Patterson sentenced to death for rape in the famous Scottsboro Boys case. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 30 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.
