Actor Leslie Howard killed in 1943....

Item # 626778

June 03, 1943

THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 3, 1943.
* Actor Leslie Howard killed in airplane crash
* 'Gone with the Wind' movie fame (Ashley Wilkes)

The top of the front page has a one column heading: "NAZIS HIT AIRLINER; LESLIE HOWARD PUT AMONG 17 MISSING" with subheads. (see) First report coverage continues on page 4 with photo. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with much on World War II. Complete in 42 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. Nice condition.
