CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, August 22, 1938
* Floyd Hamilton capture
* Public enemy # 1
* Bonnie and Clyde fame
The front page has a five column heading: "Outlaws Elude G-Men; Taken by Cops" with subheads. (see) Reporting continues on page 8 with related map. Nice photo of Hamilton is on the back page. First report coverage on the capture of the last of the Bonnie & Clyde gang, Floyd Hamilton. He was also public enemy # 1 at the time. When it comes to gangsters, organized crime, and the nefarious activities born out of the Prohibition and Great Depression eras, no city is more in the forefront of our minds than Chicago - and what better newspaper can be found than the Chicago Tribune, self-proclaimed to be "The World's Greatest Newspaper".
Complete with all 26 pages, this is the "rag edition" printed on very high quality newsprint meant for institutional holdings. In great condition as such, a few small binding holes at the spine.
