Item # 637430
July 28, 1980
THE KANSAN, Wyandotte County, Kansas, July 28, 1980 The banner headline is in reaction to the death of Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi (the deposed Shah of Iran): "Militants adamant on hostages". Keep in mind this was during the Iranian hostage crisis which lasted 444 days, and the militants holding the hostages confirmed that the Shah's death would have no bearing on the release of the hostages.
The issue is complete in 14 pages and is in very good condition (see images). The top margin does include the institutional stamp of the Kansas State Historical Society.
