Patty Hearst and the SLA...

Item # 661661

September 19, 1975

LOS ANGELES TIMES, Sept. 19, 1975 

* Patty Hearst, convicted bank robber, captured
* Newspaper heiress, socialite, actress & kidnap victim

The headline announces: "PATTY HEARST, HARRISES CAPTURED" with a subhead: "SLA Fugitives Seized without a Fight in S.F." Patty Hearst was the granddaughter of publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst who in 1974 gained notoriety during the waning days of the counterculture era when she was kidnapped by, and later joined, the Symbionese Liberation Army. Apprehended after having taken part in a bank heist with other SLA members, Hearst was imprisoned for almost two years before her sentence was commuted by President Jimmy Carter.
There are two related front page photos. Great to have this report in a California newspaper.
The complete first section (of 6), toning at the central fold, good condition.
