THE NEW YORK TIMES, August 19, 1936
* Joe Louis vs. Jack Sharkey
* Heavyweight boxing
The sport's section (page 25) has a banner headline: "Crowd of 30,000 Sees Louis Stop Sharkey in Fight at the Yankee Stadium" with subheads that include: "LOUIS KNOCKS OUT SHARKEY IN THIRD" "Loser Down Four Times" and more with two action photos. Loads of text text, too much to photograph. This was Louis' first match after his upset loss to Max Schmeling. He wouldn't lose another fight for almost 15 years.
