THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 8, 1932
* Mary Williamson Averell death
* American philanthropist
* E. H. Harriman's wife
The top of page 21 has a one column heading: "MRS. E. H. HARRIMAN DIES AT AGE OF 81" with subheads and photo. First report coverage on the death of Mary Williamson Averell, wife of railroad executive E. H. Harriman. 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 44 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.
