* Franklin Medal
The front page has a one column headline: "EINSTEIN IS SILENT AS HE GETS MEDAL" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on Albert Einstein receiving the Franklin Medal award for physics.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 48 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.
