THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 15, 1938
* O. O. McIntyre death (1st report)
* "New York Day by Day" columnist
The top of page 25 has a one column heading: "O.O. M'INTYRE DEAD; COLUMNIST WAS 54" 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 with all 42 pages, rag edition in very nice condition.
wikipedia notes: Oscar Odd McIntyre was a New York newspaper columnist of the 1920s and 1930s, who used the byline O. O. McIntyre. His writings cleverly combined a small town point of view with urban sophistication. The Washington Post once described his column as "the letter from New York read by millions because it never lost the human, homefolk flavor of a letter from a friend." For a quarter of a century, his daily column, “New York Day by Day,” was published in more than 500 newspapers.
