THE NEW YORK TIMES, August 22, 1918
* Tyler MN Minnesota
* Tornado disaster (1st report)
This 20 page newspaper has small one column headings on page 7: "13 Killed In Tornado" and "Tyler, Minn., Is Wrecked by Windstorm" which is a 1st report on the tornado disaster at Tyler, Minnesota. Unfortunate for such a small inside page report, probably because the first few pages including the front is loaded with World War I reporting. Still a 1st report though.
Other news of the day. Light browning, minor margin wear, otherwise in good condition.
