Item # 665732

April 5, 1915

EVENING HERALD, Los Angeles, April 5, 1915 

* Jess Williard vs. Jack Johnson 
* "Great white hope" wins
* Heavyweight boxing title fight (1st report) 
* Incomplete issue but all fight reporting present

The front page has a great banner headline: "WILLARD KNOCKS OUT JOHNSON" with subheads and round by round reporting, all on the front page. Nice for display. Photo of Willard on page 3. (see) Early, same day 1st report on the heavyweight boxing title fight between Jess Willard and Jack Johnson. Uncommon for such a nice headline here, especially on the front page.
Incomplete issue containing the 1st two leafs (loose), pages 1-4, light toning, great for display as such.
