About this Item

The famed Scopes Trial of July 1925 in Tennessee was first brought to national attention by this young "Nashville News-Sentinel" reporter, whose astute reports helped begin the snowballing that ended in a national debate on evolution, Clarence Darrow's victory and William Jennings Bryan's humiliation. Signed Postal Cover, 6½" X 3½", cancelled in Dayton, Tennessee on 5 May 1975. Near fine. Single 10-cent "United States" crossed flags stamp at upper right. Special "Scopes Trial / 50th Anniversary / 1925 -- 1975" postal cancellation. Across the "sweet spot," Moutoux signs boldly in blue ballpoint. With brief ANS, 1p, 4" X 6", n.p., n.y. "I'm happy to do this for you," signed simply "John." Original transmittal envelope (cancelled 11 October 1977) present, signed again by Moutoux with return address in his hand. An unusual trio.
