Item # 686824

November 17, 1946

THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 17, 1946

* Joe Paterno at Brown University (college football)

Page 2 of the sport's section (inside) has a banner headline: "Harvard Scores Twice Through Air in Crushing Brown Before 20,000 Fans" with subheads and stats. (see) Paterno is mentioned within the report once (see) and his name also appears in the lineup. (see) Probably only found in a NYC publication since he was from Brooklyn. Rare as such.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in a thick 70+ page Sunday edition, rag edition, some spine residue from disbinding, very nice condition.
