CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, May 27, 1935

The front page has a nice banner headline announcing: "RANSOM READY TO FREE BOY" with subheads. (see) Nice for display. Seven related photos are on the back page. Coverage on the kidnapping of George Weyerhaeuser, son of wealthy lumberman J.P. Weyerhaeuser in Tacoma, Washington. Nice for display here.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 34 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Nice condition save for a few binding holes along the spine.
