THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 2, 1934
* The Harvard Lampoon stolen
* Undergraduate humor publication
* Yale's response for "Handsome Dan"
The top of the front page has a two column heading: "Whole Issue of Lampoon 'Stolen'; Harvard Editors Suspect Yale" with subhead. (see) Was this in revenge for the kidnapping of "Handsome Dan", Yale's bulldog mascot.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 46 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.
