1938 Rodessa, Louisiana tornado...

Item # 657517

February 18, 1938

CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, February 18, 1938 

* Rodessa, Louisiana tornado
* Caddo County disaster
* Oil boom town wrecked

The front page has a great banner headline: "20 DIE IN LOUISIANA TORNADO" with subheads and small related map. Nice for display. First report coverage on the devastating tornado that hit the oil boom town of Rodessa, Louisiana.
Complete with all 32 pages, this is the "rag edition" printed on very high quality newsprint meant for institutional holdings. In great condition as such, a few small binding holes at the blank spine.
