THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 20, 1941
* Franklin D. Roosevelt
* 3rd FDR inauguration (day of)
On this day, history was made with the inauguration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt for a 3rd term. The top of the front page has a four column headline: "ROOSEVELT HAS A TALK WITH WILLKIE AND GIVES HIM LETTER TO CHURCHILL; TO TAKE THIRD-TERM OATH TODAY" with subheads. (see) More related coverage inside. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
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.
