Item # 639687
December 9, 1931
THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 9, 1931
* President Herbert Hoover
* State of the Union Address
* Great Depression & prohibition era
The top of the front page has a four column headline: "HOOVER MESSAGE CALLS FOR TAX RISE AND $500,000,000 CREDIT CORPORATION; FIGHT OVER MOSES DEADLOCKS SENATE" with many subheads. (see) Complete text of Hoover's annual message to Congress on page 21. Loads of text. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 52 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.
