Actually I managed to purchase a small card with Joseph Caillaux's signature on it. I have never seen one with Margarite's signature or one of Gaston Calmette.

Of course (and if you followed that case) the card is not signed "Tan Jo!".
That was how Caillaux addressed mail to Margarite when still married to the first wife. Calmette (by publishing their love letters) made Joseph Caillaux look like an idiot.

Best wishes,

Jeff

50 years ago -1958 June 24 - Raymond Bailey is hanged in an Australian jail. He been convicted of the ambush shooting murders of Thyra Bowman, her teenage daughter Wendy and their traveling companion Tom Whelan. The trio had been out camping. Bailey had no explanation for the slaughters.

Sorry I'm a day late posting this. I guess 50 years ago today we'd likely be celebrating Bailey's funeral.

Hi Stan,

I constantly keep my eyes open if anything is available. But I have to keep an eye on how much I can spend on them. I have about twenty now.

50 years ago - 1958 July 23 - Los Angeles TV repairman, Harvey Murray Glatman strangles his third and final murder victim, Ruth Mercado, after alternately raping and photographing her while bound. He used the ruse of a modeling job to get the women alone. His next victim was able to free herself and Glatman went to the gas chamber the next year. Too good for him (editorial comment)

Hi Stan,

Have to agree with you about Glatman - nothing I've read about him is remotely attractive as a human being (George Joseph Smith and Reginald Christie are marginally more attractive - but I said marginally).

By the way, part of Glatman's method popped up in an early "Columbo" episode, wherein Dick Van Dyke (a professional photographer) photographs his trussed up wife and victim as part of his elaborate scheme to set up his own alibi. It is the photograph that trips him up at the end.

Best wishes,

Jeff

Hi Jeff,

I don't think I've seen that Columbo but there was a Dragnet TV movie that was based on Glatman. Right now, I don't recall its exact title but I've seen it and it isn't too bad.

100 years ago - 1908 August 14 - In the hometown of Abraham Lincoln, Springfield, Illinois, a lynch mob gathers outside the jail with the intent of stringing up a black man who'd been accused of an attempted sexual assault on a white woman, a charge that later proved to be fictional. When the gang finds out that the man has been moved to another city for his protection, they vent their wrath on the black community, killing a barber named Scott Burton. The following day they also kill an elderly African-American businessman named William Donnagan. They also ransack many black and some Jewish owned businesses. At least five whites were also killed in the rampage, some by stray bullets and others by blacks defending themselves. No one was ever charged with the crimes, however, a woman who had been a leader in the riots, committed suicide when she learned that she was probably going to be arrested.
