Item # 696765

June 20, 1945

THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 20, 1945

* Battle of Okinawa, Japan ending
* Dwight E. Eisenhower's welcome home
* Closing events of World War II

The front page has a banner headline: "MARINES SLASH TO OKINAWA TIP, SPLITTING FOE" with subheads.(see)
Also on the front page is: "WELCOME TO EISENHOWER IS CITY'S GREATEST..." with subheads and photo. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 38 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.
