Jesse Owens wins gold at the Berlin Olympics...



Item # 660776

August 5, 1936

NEW YORK WORLD-TELEGRAM, August 5, 1936 

* Jesse Owens shines in track & field
* Olympic games in Berlin Germany
* In front of Adolph Hitler & Third Reich


The front page has a three column heading: "OWENS CAPTURES 200 IN 20.7 TO SCORE OLYMPIC TRIPLE" with subheads. (See) Much more in the sport's section. 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.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 38 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
