Jim Morrison of The Doors found dead...
Item # 643269
July 9, 1971
THE RALEIGH TIMES, North Carolina, July 9, 1971
* Jim Morrison of The Doors
* Death stated to be of natural causes
* Louis Armstrong's funeral
Page nine has the displayable 4 column heading: "Rock Star's Death, Burial Told", with accompanying text and a photo. The report states that "he died peacefully of natural causes." The report also reports of his burial. Rare to find both a death and a burial notice within the same issue - and in this instance, the same article. This was due to the 5-day delay in the reporting of his death. The same page also has: "Armstrong's Funeral Held", which reports details regarding the funeral of Louis Armstrong.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day are found throughout.
Complete in 34 pages, a few binding holes along the spine which do not impact the coverage. Very nice condition.
