Item # 673738

July 20, 1931

THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 20, 1931

* Mount Pleasant, Michigan
* Isabella County

Page 13 has a one column heading: "7 DIE OF BURNS IN OIL WELL FIRE" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the Mount Pleasant, Michigan oil well explosion disaster. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 36 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. Some small binding slits along the spine.
