1st game at Kinnick Stadium.... Iowa Hawkeyes...

Item # 671448

October 06, 1929

THE NEW YORK TIMES, October 6, 1929

* Kinnick Stadium debut (Nile Kinnick)
* Iowa Hawkeyes NCAA college football

The sport's section of this issue is loaded with college football reports from the previous day. Page 4 of this section has small and somewhat discrete headings at the bottom of the page that read: "Iowa On Top, 46-0" and "Has Easy Time With Monmouth as New Stadium is Opened". See photo for brief 1st report coverage on the very 1st game played at Kinnick Stadium which is still used today by the Iowa Hawkeyes college football team. Unfortunate for the small report here, but it is what it is.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day throughout. Complete in a thick 100+ page Sunday edition, crease on the front page, a little irregular along the spine, generally very nice.
