THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 21, 1981 

* Ronald Reagan inauguration
* Iran hostage crisis ends

Two historic banner headlines on the front page read: "REAGAN TAKES OATH AS 40TH PRESIDENT; PROMISES AN 'ERA OF NATIONAL RENEWAL' " as well as: "MINUTES LATER, 52 U.S. HOSTAGES IN IRAN FLY TO FREEDOM AFTER 444-DAY ORDEAL" with various related subheads.
Ftpg. photos include Ronald Reagan being sworn in as President, one of the hostages being "...hustled to a plane in Tehran." and one of Jimmy Carter with a wife of a hostage.
Great to have this historic event in this famous newspaper. The complete first sections (pgs. 1-32) of a 48 page issue. nice condition.
