Alexander Fleming.... Penicillin...

Item # 642845

October 26, 1945

THE NEW YORK TIMES, October 26, 1945

* Alexander Fleming
* Penicillin - Penicillium
* Nobel Prize in Medicine

Page 21 has two column headings that include: "Fleming and Two Co-Workers Get Nobel Award for Penicillin Boon" and more with photo of Alexander Fleming and his two associates. (see) First report coverage on Alexander Fleming, Howard Florey and Ernst Boris Chain winning the 1945 Nobel Prize in Medicine for their work on producing penicillin. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 34 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.
