Hank O'Day death... baseball
Item # 648694
July 3, 1935
THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 3, 1935
* Hank (Henry) O'Day death (1st report)
* MLB baseball pitcher, umpire & manager
The top of page 17 has a one column heading: "HENRY O'DAY DIES; BASEBALL UMPIRE" with subheads and photo. (see) 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 36 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.
