December 24, 1948

THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 24, 1948

* Hideki Tojo hanged (1st report)
* World War II Japanese criminals

Page 2 has one column headings that include: "TOJO CRIED 'BANZAI' AWAITING GALLOWS" "He and 3 Others Gave Triple Hail for Emperor and Japan...." (see) First report coverage on the execution of top Japanese officials including Hideki Tojo. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 32 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.
