Item # 646216
October 5, 1931
THE NEW YORK TIMES, October 5, 1931
* Vincent "Mad Dog" Coll gang captured
* American mobster hitman
* Dutch Shultz mob war
The front page has a two column headline: "COLL SEIZED WITH HIS GANG; IDENTIFIED AS BABY KILLER; 6 TAKEN IN BATTLE UPSATE" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the capture of New York mobster Mad Dog Coll. Lengthy text continues on page 3 with photo. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication, especially on this topic.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 pages, light toning at the margins, generally nice.
