First mention of Ronald Reagan (?)...

Item # 623591

June 03, 1937

THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 3, 1937

* Very early Ronald Reagan
* Beginning on the big screen
* Warner Brothers movies

This is a significant issue for any Ronald Reagan or presidential  collector, as this is the very first mention of him in the prestigious New York Times. The mention appears on page 29 under the heading: "News Of The Screen" and mentions him appearing in a new movie: "...Ronald Reagan, a new Warner find, and June Travis will be the principals in "Inside Story"...". An inconspicuous report, yet significant as his first mention in this national newspaper.
News, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete 52 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Very nice condition.
