Anna Adams Gordon death....
Item # 646304
June 16, 1931
THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 16, 1931
* Anna Adams Gordon death (1st report)
* Woman's Christian Temperance Union
* Social reformer - temperance movement
Page 27 has a one column heading: "ANNA GORDON DEAD; W. C. T. U. LEADER" with subheads and photo. (see) First report coverage on the death of Anna Adams Gordon, temperance movement pioneer. 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 56 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. A little spine residue from disbinding, otherwise very nice.
