Item # 644977

April 22, 1937

THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 22, 1937

* Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company
* Death of co-founder William Davidson

Page 23 has one column headings: "WILLIAM DAVIDSON, MOTORCYCLE MAKER" "Harley-Davidson Vice President and a Veteran in His Field Dead in Milwaukee" "INVENTED MACHINE IN 1903" "One of 3 Brothers Who Joined a Chum in Enterprise That Started in Small Shed" First report coverage on the death of one of the original founders of the famed Harley Davidson Mortorcycle Company. Nice to have in this famous NYC title. I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 48 pages, light toning at the margins, nice condition.
