Louis "Lepke" Buchalter Executed....



Item # 658589

March 5, 1944

CHICAGO SUNDAY TRIBUNE, March 5, 1944.
 
* Mob Boss Louis 'Lepke' Buchalter
* Mafia hit squad Murder, Inc. fame
* Sing Sing Prison execution


The front page has a great banner headline: "LEPKE AND 2 PALS EXECUTED" with subheads and small photo. Nice for display. First report coverage on the execution of Murder Inc. mob boss, Louis Buchalter, by electric chair at Sing Sing Prison. 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" - attributed in part to its dramatic, banner headlines! Whether hanging on your wall or part of an ongoing collection, these events are sure to capture the flavor of this infamous period in American history.
Complete with 40+ pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
