THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 17, 1931
* Tecumseh bones found in Canada
* Native American - Shawnee leader
* Walpole Island First Nation - Ontario
Page 9 has a two column heading: "Tecumseh's Bones Believed Found in Ontario At the Island Cabin of a Chief's Widow" (see) 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 36 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.
