Jesse Owens wins gold at the Berlin Olympics...
Item # 657861
August 3, 1936
CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, August 3, 1936
* Jesse Owens 100-meter gold medal victory
* Olympic games in Berlin Germany
* In front of Adolph Hitler & Third Reich
The front page has a one column heading: "OWENS BREAKS WORLD RECORD IN OLYMPICS" with subhead. First report coverage continues in section 2 (sports) with related photo.
A sidebar to the Olympic games was Adolph Hitler's refusal to acknowledge the achievements of the African-American athletes, not surprising given his belief that only his superior German Aryan race would dominate at the games. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
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.
