Item # 658986

March 15, 1934


* Gangster John Dillinger
* Post famous wooden gun escape
* Hunted in the Midwest

The top of page 3 has a one column heading: "JOHN DILLINGER PAROLE UNDER FIRE OF JURORS" with subhead. Three related photos are on the back page. This was probably the most famous escapes from a high security jail in United States history. 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 30 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 blank spine.
