Item # 643650

October 9, 1945

THE NEW YORK TIMES, October 9, 1945

* 1st Conscientious Objector winner
* Desmond T. Doss wins Medal of Honor
* Blockbuster movie "Hacksaw Ridge" fame
* Also in Bill O'Reilly's "Killing the Rising Sun"

The top of page 10 has a one column heading: "MEDAL OF HONOR WON BY OBJECTOR" with subhead. (see) First report coverage on Doss winning the Medal on Honor for his exploits at the Battle of Okinawa. Doss is featured in the blockbuster movie "Hacksaw Ridge". Rare to find period reporting on Doss as well.
Other news, sports advertisements of the day. Complete in 38 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.
