21-P-447

Regular price $30.00

B&W 7.5x6" press photo with mimeo press release (originally pasted on reverse, now loose). Subject is "Death Overtakes Two More College Men". Text speaks to the death of two US Navy pilots, D. Sturtevant and Curtis Reid; likely both of the First Yale Unit (I'm not in my reference library at the moment or I could confirm this). Good condition; one 3/4" circular loss of emulsion on right leg of pilot on the left.
