1942 Cocoanut Grove Club fire disaster...



Item # 663574

November 29, 1942

MINNEAPOLIS SUNDAY TRIBUNE, Nov. 29, 1942 

* Cocoanut Grove nightclub fire (1st report)
* Worst nightclub disaster in U.S. history
* Early rpt. as 492 would be the total dead


The front page has a nice banner headline: "FEAR 100 DEAD IN CAFE FIRE" with subheads. Nice for display. Note the headline reports maybe 100 perished making this a very early report as close to 500 would die in this disaster.
Twenty plus pages, light toning and minor wear at the margins, small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
