CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, December 2, 1936
* John Ringling death
* Circus pioneer
* Early, same report
The front page has a one column heading: "John Ringling Dead; Last of Circus Family" with small photo on the back page. (see) First report coverage on the death of John Ringling, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus fame.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete with all 44 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. A few small binding holes along the spine.
