Item # 661238

June 22, 1939

NEW YORK WORLD-TELEGRAM, June 22, 1939.
 
* Lou Gehrig's baseball career ends
* Infantile Paralysis diagnosis
* Illustration w/ editorial


The sport's section (24) has a nice illustration showing a likeness of Lou Gehrig with heading: "The Iron Heart" with brief text. (see) Also on the same page is a editorial with heading: "Get Health Back, Win Dugout Job, Gehrig's Aim Now"concerning his recent diagnosis of Infantile Paralysis just days days earlier. He announced his affliction just 1 day prior to here. Nice to have in this uncommon NYC publication.
Complete with all 36 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
