Truman, Harry S. Dewey Defeats Truman. Chicago Daily Tribune Full Front Page. Chicago, Nov. 3, 1948. Broadsheet newspaper front page bearing the famous headline that boldly and incorrectly called the presidential election in favor of New York governor Thomas Dewey. Fine copy with minor tears at original central crossfold, minor scattered browning. Matted and framed to 30 x 23â€. With the former ownerâ€™s research file on the copy, which includes notes the owner made during a phone call with the Chicago Tribune public relations department, who related that roughly 6,000 copies with the misprinted headline were distributed for street sales; while these copies were immediately withdrawn once the error was caught, the quantity of original printings that circulated are marked by several lines of upside-down text in the rightmost column, as present on this copy.
