As a high school history teacher I collect newspaper articles for my students to later explore. The 5/24/2020 New York Times cover had the lists of victims of Covid-19. The paper sold out early. I tried to get a copy calling everyone I could think of. My boss a principal at Sem Yeto called his family in New York and they were able to find me one. I just got it today.
