Death of Warren Harding....

Item # 618365

August 07, 1923

THE RICHMOND ITEM, Richmond, Indiana, August 7, 1923.
* Warren G. Harding death
This newspaper has a two line, seven column headline on the front page: "INDIANA BOWS HEAD AS BODY OF HARDING CROSSES STATE TO OHIO" with subheads which include: "Nation's Burden Passes Through Silent Throngs", "Wash. [Washington D.C.] Prepares To Receive Body Of Dead Leader", and more. Also has an unrelated article on the front page: "Formula Used in Saving Austria May Be Applied To Put Germany on Feet" - interesting considering that Germany's economic woes would become fodder for the rise of Hitler.
Complete in 12 pages, even toning, a delivery label on the front page (see image), but is very good for the era.
