Roald Amundsen died at sea....

Item # 678490

July 02, 1928

THE DAY, New London, Connecticut, July 2, 1928

* Roald Amundsen death
* Norwegian polar explorer

This 16 page newspaper has three column headline on the front page: "Report Amundsen Body Found In Sea Off Norway, Unverified; England Sends Planes to Hunt" with subheads.  Curious report here as history shows his body was never found.

Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. A few binding holes along the 1st column causing some text loss to mentioned report, otherwise good.

Item from Catalog 306 (released for May, 2021)...
