The front page has a one column heading: "NEVILLS CONQUERS COLORADO RIVER" with subhead. (see) Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete with all 26 pages, light toning and minor wear at the margins, generally very nice.
wikipedia notes: Norman D. Nevills was a pioneer of commercial river-running in the American Southwest, particularly the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. He led trips including Dr. Elzada Clover and Lois Jotter, the first two women to successfully float the Grand Canyon (which occurred in 1938), and Barry Goldwater.
