Headlines, April 22, 1952.

Succeeded by The Dunn Dispatch, The Daily Record supplied the local area with publications on global and local news every Monday through Friday.  Major events reported on in this upload include the end notes of World War II, the beginning of the Cold War, the Korean War, and the 1952 Presidential election of Eisenhower and Vice President Nixon. While headlines often revolved around global politics,  The Daily Record notably made Klan arrests and court rulings front page news, as well as acknowledging moments of national desegregation.
