Item # 659845

June 26, 1939

THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 26, 1939

* Lou's Gehrig's disease - Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
* Studied shortly before his famous "luckiest" speech


The top of page 17 has a two column heading: "Gehrig Case Is Expected to Spur Research Into Baffling Malady" with subhead. (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 34 pages, minor spine wear, nice condition.
