January 09, 1981

LOS ANGELES TIMES, Jan. 9, 1981 

* Matthew Beard Jr. death (1st report)
* "Out Gang" "Little Rascals" child actor
* Best title to be had ?

The bottom of page 3 has a heading: "Stymie of 'Our Gang' Comedies Dies" "Matthew Beard Jr. Was Second Black Child to Appear in Series" and includes two photos of him, one from 1973 and the other from when a child actor in the 'Our Gang' films. The article carries over to page 15.
Great to have this report in a newspaper from the capital of the entertainment industry & from the city where he lived and died.
The complete first section with pages 1-22, nice condition.
