THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 17, 1936
* Larry Kelley wins Heisman Trophy
* Yale University college football

The sport's section (page 36) has a banner headline: "Kelley Calls Football 'Big Business', but Says that It Still Belongs to Players" with subheads and photo. (see) First report coverage on Larry Kelley winning the Heisman Trophy out of Yale University. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 56 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.
