Page 4 has one column headings: "MISS EARHART GETS HOME CITY GREETING" "Flier and Companions Receive Warm Welcome and Presents at Medford, Mass." and more. (see) 1st report coverage on Amelia Earhart's hometown welcome after her famous flight across the Atlantic Ocean.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 48 pages, rag edition, very nice condition.
Note: While the major historic events in Amelia Earhart's life can be read about through multiple venues (books, newspapers, magazines, etc.), many of the more obscure events can only be found within a handful (at most) of daily newspapers of her day. Yet, it is these reports which add color to one of the most beloved personalities of the 20th century. Thankfully, the New York Times was one of the few publications which emphasized such reports.
