Death of Wilbur Wright...

Item # 646139

May 30, 1912

THE NEWS SCIMITAR, Memphis, Tennessee, May 30, 1912 

* Death of aviator Wilbur Wright (Brothers)

The top of the first column announces the death of Wilbur Wright with: "WILBUR WRIGHT, DARING BIRDMAN, YIELDS TO DEATH" "Celebrated Aviator and Inventor Dies at Dayton, O., Thursday Morning After Severe Illness Since May 4" "Patient Seemed Better Before Final Relapse". The article takes half a column.
Twelve pages, some minor margin tears, generally good condition but somewhat fragile & must be handled carefully.
