September 05, 1928
THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 5, 1928
* Aviatrix Amelia Earhart
* Hatbox Field landing
* Muskogee County, Oklahoma
The bottom of page 2 has a very small and discrete heading: "Miss Earhart Lands at Muskogee" First report coverage on Amelia Earhart landing at Hatbox Airfield at Muskogee, Oklahoma
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 56 pages, light toning at the margins, a few small binding slits along the spine, generally in very nice condition.
Note: While the major historic events in Amelia Earhart's life can be read about through multiple venues (books, newspapers, magazines, etc.), many of the more obscure events can only be found within a handful (at most) of daily newspapers of her day. Yet, it is these reports which add color to one of the most beloved personalities of the 20th century. Thankfully, the New York Times was one of the few publications which emphasized such reports.
