THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 3, 1928
* Theodore William Richards death
* 1st American Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry
* Harvard University - atomic weights - elements
The top of page 29 has a one column heading: "HARVARD CHEMIST, T. W. RICHARDS, DIES" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the death of Theodore William Richards, the first American scientist to receive the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day.
Complete in 60 pages, slits along the left margin, otherwise quite nice.
