Dewey Defeats Truman Newspaper GOP Wins White House

Quick Overview

This is an original complete Chicago Daily Tribune from November 3, 1948.

Perhaps the most recognizable headline of the 20th century is that which appeared on the front page of this title and date--but an earlier edition. The earlier edition read "Dewey Defeats Truman", made famous by the photo showing Harry S. Truman smiling and holding that famous newspaper.

This is the "Final" days edition printed the very same day but after the the editors softened the phrasing proclaiming Dewey the victor, but still unaware of the true final outcome of the election, by proclaiming: "G.O.P. WINS WHITE HOUSE". Includes the text "Dewey and Warren swept the country in the Presidential election yesterday. The early returns indicated that the Republican ticket had won by an overwhelming majority of electoral votes. President Truman went down to defeat with few states outside of the south..." . The infamous text in the right column that was incorrectly placed upside down has been corrected in this edition.

This the complete newspaper. It has obvious trips and tears, but given the difficulty in finding this companion edition to the earlier "Dewey Defeats Truman", still very collectible. The edges of the paper have some tears as well as the typical pulling at the center horizontal fold. At the right extreme horizontal fold there is a tear where there is paper loss, but when paper is displayed folded, it is hardly noticeable.

This later addition is extremely hard to find but is not as well known as the famous "Dewey Defeats Truman" headline. Actually, this is only the fifth copy of this edition we have owned in the past 40+ years. So, not in the best condition, but priced accordingly
