Mobster Dean O'Banion assassination...
Item # 646865
November 11, 1924
THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 11, 1924
* Dion O'Banion assassination (1st report)
* Chicago mobster - bootlegger - racketeer
* North Side Gang leader
The top of page 25 has a one column heading: "BEER-RUNNING 'KING' IS SLAIN IN CHICAGO" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the assassination of Chicago mob boss Dean O'Banion. This is early for Chicago mob news prior to Al Capone becoming a nationally known figure. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete with all 48 pages, light toning at the margins, irregular along the spine, generally very nice.
