* Sidney Poitier wins Best Actor Oscar
*1st African American male to win an Academy Award


Near the bottom front page is a two column heading: "Poitier, Neal, 'tom Jones' Receive Academy Awards" (see) Sidney Poitier, who came from very humble beginnings, was the 1st African American man to win an Academy Award. Quite historic.
Complete with 10 pages, light toning at the margin, some small binding holes along the spine, archival mend on page 2, generally nice.
