Negro boxer Jack Johnson Death...



Item # 643607

June 11, 1946

NEW YORK TIMES, June 11, 1946 

* Heavyweight boxer Jack Johnson... 
* Death report...  1st report... 


Near the bottom of the front page is a two column heading that announces: "Jack Johnson Dies in Auto Crash; Ex-Heavyweight Champion Was 68" Quite a detailed report concluding on the back page with photo of Johnson.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 46 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. Very nice condition.
