NYC's catastrophic 23rd Street fire...

Thanksgiving Proclamation by President Johnson...



Item # 637989

October 19, 1966

THE NEW YORK TIMES, October 19, 1966 

* LBJ's eloquent Thanksgiving Proclamation
* One of the best we've seen - particularly from the 20th century


Page 39 has the complete text of an absolutely wonderful Thanksgiving Proclamation given by President Lyndon B. Johnson (see images for text). The front page tells of the death of Elizabeth Arden and of the tragic 23rd Street Fire, which claimed the lives of 12 firemen. Until September 11, 2001, it was the heaviest loss of life in the NY City Fire Department’s history. Photos and considerable coverage are included.
The issue is believed to be complete in multiple sections, but is being offered for the described content. Good condition (see images).
