THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 2, 1929
* St. Valentine's Day massacre arrest
* Jack McGurn - Al Capone trigger man
Page 7 has one column headings that include: "MURDER CHARGES LODGED IN CHICAGO" "McGurn and Fanelli, Alleged Gang Gunners, Are Accused of Killing Moran's Seven Men" "15 Others Still Hunted" and more. (see) First report coverage on the murder indictment of Al Capone henchman, Jack McGurn, for his role in the St. Valentine's Day massacre. Interesting report here which mentions Louis Rolfe, a "blonde alibi" woman which would become a key figure into the investigation that would ultimately prevent McGurn from prosecution.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 36 pages, light toning at the margins, a little irregular along the spine, generally nice.
