1912 Rawlins, Wyoming Negro lynching...

Item # 679845

October 02, 1912

EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Oct. 2, 1912

* Negro Frank Wigfall lynching
* Wyoming State Penitentiary
* Rawlins, Carbon County

The front page has a one column heading: "'NEGRO LOCKED IN STATE PRISON LYNCHED BY CONVICTS" with subhead. (see) Surprisingly this issue is in good condition being from the "wood pulp" era. Very hard to find issues that are not totally fragile from this era in paper.
Complete with 16 pages, two small library stamps within the masthead, a little irregular along the spine, generally very nice.
