THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 12, 1948

* Claude Harmon wins Masters Tournament
* Augusta National Golf Club - Georgia

The sport's section (page 26) has a banner headline: "Harmon Triumphs in Masters Golf Event With Record-Equaling Card of 279" with subheads, photo and scores. First report coverage on Claude Harmon winning the 1948 Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta, Georgia. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete with all 42 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.
