June 22, 1943

THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 22, 1943

* Detroit race riot of 1943
* World War II - WWII
* African Americans taking jobs

The front page has a three column headline: "23 DEAD IN DETROIT RIOTING; FEDERAL TROOPS ENTER CITY ON THE ORDERS OF ROOSEVELT" with subheads. (see) Coverage continues inside with related pictorial. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 40 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.
