First, open the following URL in a new tab or new window:
Then, scroll right… so that the electronic reader says “Page 4 of 31″, but the actual newspaper page shown is page 6A.
Note the following in the Oct 2, 1952 edition of The Deseret News and Telegram:
Multiple Hat Tips:
Miri at We The People of the United States (WTPOTUS.wordpress.com), who gives a hat tip to patlin at Free Republic who found an article by Linda Bentley on September 22, 2010 at the Sonoran News entitled:
Ike needed birth certificate to run for president
‘Ike had nothing to hide!’
That article gives credit to “Glen Fairclough, a reader from Salt Lake City, Utah” for going through digital images online of his hometown newspaper, the Deseret News and Telegram, and finding the United Press wire article from the Oct. 2, 1952 edition:
The article appeared on page 6A with a dateline of Sherman, Texas. It was headlined: “General’s birth certificate officially filed,” and stated, “A certificate recording Dwight Eisenhower’s birth in Denison on Oct. 14, 1890, was filed Wednesday [Oct. 1, 1952] in the Grayson County Clerk’s office.
“Nobody had bothered to make out a certificate when the Republican presidential candidate was born in a house at the corner of Lamar and Day streets in nearby Denison.
“A copy of the certificate filed Wednesday was mailed to Mrs. Eisenhower in Denver. Eisenhower’s older brother, Arthur, signed the certificate. It was also signed by the Grayson County Judge J.N. Dickson and recorded by County Clerk J.C. Buchanan.”
All I’ve added to this find is that I have located the URL for the online images of the Oct. 2, 1952 edition of the Deseret News and Salt Lake Telegram, so that anyone can verify for themselves that this historical find is real.
