1946 Earthquake & Tsunami...

Item # 647574

April 2, 1946

THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 2, 1946.

* Alleutian Islands Earthquake
* Alaska & Hawaii Tsunami

The front page has a four column headline: "TIDAL WAVES IN THE PACIFIC KILL 300, BATTER HAWAII, WEST COAST, ALASKA; UNDERSEA QUAKES CAUSE UPHEAVAL" with subheads that include: "Devastation Vast" "5,000 Homeless In Hawaii" and more. (see) Related map on the front page as well.  Nice to have in this famous NYC title.
Other news,sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 48 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.
