Louis "Lepke" Buchalter Executed....

Item # 677045

March 06, 1944

* Mob Boss Louis 'Lepke' Buchalter
* Mafia hit squad Murder, Inc. fame
* Sing Sing Prison execution

The front page has a one column heading: "LEPKE BURIED; MURDER, INC., GOES WITH HIM" with subhead. Related photo on the back page. (see) 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". Much on current events of World War II.
Complete with 30 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
