Fred Duesenberg death... automobile pioneer...

Item # 691544

July 27, 1932

THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 27, 1932

* Fred Duesenberg death
* Automobile pioneer
* Race car motors

Page 17 has a one column heading: "F. S. DUESENBERG DIES OF AUTO INJURY" with subheads and photo. (see) First report coverage on the death of Frederick Samuel Duesenberg, automobile pioneer designer, manufacturer and sportsman. 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 36 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.
