Reporting on the John Scopes "monkey trial"...

Item # 652887

July 07, 1925

NEW YORK TIMES, July 7, 1925 

* Scopes Monkey Trial
* Dayton, Tennessee 
* William Jennings Bryan 
* Clarence Darrow

 The top of a front page column reports on the historic & controversial Scopes "monkey" trial with: "SCOPES FAILS TO GET FEDERAL INJUNCTION; STATE TRIAL FRIDAY" and subheads: "Judge Gore Rules Tennessee Officers Are Acting in the Only Way they Are Authorized" "Two Petitions Presented" "Teacher Charges Violation of Liberty--Parent Asserts Right to Educate His Children" "Darrow Says He Fears the State Court May Limit the Case to Whether Law Was Violated".
The detailed report takes nearly a full column and continues on page 20.
Complete in 44 pages, a bit irregular at the sine from disbinding, generally nice condition.
