Chauncey Olcott death...

Item # 671203

March 19, 1932

THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 19, 1932

* Chauncey Olcott death
* Actor, songwriter & singer

Page 15 has a one column heading: "CHAUNCEY OLCOTT, BALLARD SINGER, DIES" with subheads and photo. (see) First report coverage on the death of Chauncey Olcott, Irish-American stage actor, songwriter and singer.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 34 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. Nice condition.
