Howard Hughes wins Harmon Trophy....
Item # 659543
March 01, 1937
THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 1, 1937
* Aviator Howard Hughes
* Aviatrix Jean Batten
* Harmon Trophy presentation
Page 9 has a one column heading: "Air Prize For Hughes; Jean Batten Honored" with subhead and photos. See image for report here. 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 38 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. Minor creasing, otherwise nice.
