Item # 639672
March 16, 1935
THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 16, 1935
* Albert H. Fish trial - creepy acts
* Serial killer, child rapist and cannibal
* "The Boogey Man" - "Gray Man"
* "Brooklyn Vampire" - "Werewolf of Wysteria"
The top of page 4 has a one column heading: "FISH'S WEIRD ACTS TOLD BY CHILDREN" with subheads. (see) I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not, probably because he committed his crimes locally and didn't become infamous until after the fact. Rare as such.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 32 pages, light toning at the margins, generally very nice.
