Item # 643833

May 04, 1946

THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 4, 1946

* Alcatraz Island prison riot
* San Francisco Bay "The Rock"


The front page has a three column headline: "ALCATRAZ BATTLE PRESSED, 'DEAL' DENIED TO CONVICTS; 2 GUARDS DEAD, 13 INJURED" with subheads. (see) Related photos on page 3. (see) Lengthy coverage continues on page 3 with related photos. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 30 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.
