CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, October 19, 1937
* J. Bruce Ismay death
* RMS Titanic fame
Page 12 has a one column heading: "Joseph Bruce Ismay, Survivor Of Titanic Disaster, Dies At 74" (see) First report coverage on the death of J. Bruce Ismay, who was the chairman and managing director of the White Star Line of steamships at the time of the sinking of the Titanic. I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not. Rare as such.
Complete with all 32 pages, this is the "rag edition" printed on very high quality newsprint meant for institutional holdings. In great condition as such, a few small binding holes at the blank spine.
