Hauptmann is electrocuted for the murder of the Lindbergh baby...



Item # 662331

April 04, 1936

NEW YORK WORLD-TELEGRAM, April 4, 1936 

* Bruno Hauptmann execution (1st report)
* Charles Lindbergh baby kidnapping


A nice two line banner headline: "HAUPTMANN IS ELECTROCUTED WITHOUT CONFESSING MURDER" with several subheads including: "Goes To Chair Without Word Except Prayer" :" 'God, Why Did You Do This!' Screams Anna Hauptmann" and more. Also a photo headed: "Crowd Outside Prison After Execution".
More on this on pages 4 and 5 as well.
The complete issue, very nice condition.
