Death of Henry Ford...

Item # 642475

April 08, 1947

THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 8, 1947.

* Henry Ford death (1st report)
* Automobile pioneer - Detroit, Michigan

The front page has a two column headline: "HENRY FORD IS DEAD AT 83 IN DEARBORN" with subheads that include: "Pioneer In Autos" "Leader in Production Founded Vast Empire in Motors in 1903" and more. Lengthy coverage continues on page 32 with photo of Ford. Too much text to photograph all. Nice to have in this famous NYC publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 56 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.
