Charles Birger execution....



Item # 642065

April 20, 1928

THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 20, 1928

* Gangster Charles Birger hanging - execution
* Prohibition era bootlegger - charged w/ murder


Page 25 has a smaller one column heading: "Last Illinois Hanging Sends Birger To Doom" with subhead. (see) First report coverage the execution of Charles Birger for the murder of Mayor Joseph Adams. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 48 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. A few small binding slits along the spine, nice condition.
