Item # 638456

October 13, 1945

THE NEW YORK TIMES, October 13, 1945

* 1st Conscientious Objector winner
* Desmond T. Doss - Medal of Honor
* Blockbuster movie "Hacksaw Ridge" fame
* Also in Bill O'Reilly's "Killing the Rising Sun"

Page 3 has a one column heading: "TRUMAN PRESENTS HONOR MEDAL TO 15" with subhead and nice four column photo of Corporal Desmond Doss receiving his medal on the White House lawn. (see) Doss is featured in the blockbuster movie "Hacksaw Ridge". Rare to find period reporting on Doss as well.
Other news, sports advertisements of the day. Complete in 26 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. Very nice condition.
