Item # 673360
March 28, 1940
THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 28, 1940
* Madeleine Fiermonte Astor death (1st report)
* American socialite & RMS Titanic survivor
The top of page 22 has a one column heading: "MRS. FIERMONTE, 47, IS DEAD IN SOUTH" with subheads that include: "Survivor Of The Titanic" and more with photo. (see) 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 with all 44 pages, light toning and a little wear at the margins, small address stamp within the masthead, generally nice.
