Not quite the "Dewey Defeats Truman" headline...

Item # 644405

October 31, 1948

BOSTON ADVERTISER, Oct. 31, 1941  Not quite the historic "DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN" blunder of the Chicago Tribune, but this issue makes a prediction that: "DEWEY ELECTION CERTAIN" with related subheads, and includes a photo of Gov. Thomas E. Dewey. Just two days before the election this newspaper makes the bold--and erroneous--prediction that Dewey would defeat Truman for the presidency.
The complete first section with pages 1-12, some tears at margin & light toning, generally good condition.
