Thomas Edison supports Prohibition law....
Item # 664816
December 18, 1930
THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 18, 1930
* Inventor Thomas Edison
* U.S. Prohibition support
* Anti beer - liquor law
Page 17 has a one column heading: "EDISON SEES BOON IN PROHIBITION LAW" with subheads. (see) See images for a question/answer article showing Thomas Edison's support for the Eighteenth Amendment. 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 advertisement of the day. Complete in 52 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.
