Emil Oberhoffer death... Conductor & composer...

Item # 688617

May 23, 1933

THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 23, 1933

* Emil Oberhoffer death (1st report)
* Minnesota Orchestra conductor
* Music composer - violinist

The top of page 19 has a one column heading: "EMIL OBERHOFFER, MUSICIAN, IS DEAD" with subheads and photo. (see) I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 40 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Nice condition.
