Item # 654358
July 3, 1939
THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 3, 1939
* Marian Anderson receives Spingarn Medal
* Celebrated African American singer
* First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt
The top of page 15 has a one column heading: "FIRST LADY HONORS MARTIAN ANDERSON" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on Eleanor Roosevelt presenting Marian Anderson with the 1939 Spingarn Medal. 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 26 pages, rag edition, a few small blue ink spots on the 1st few pages, otherwise in very nice condition.
