    He is indeed quoting from the grave. Or rather quoted from the grave. Died in November 1918, quoted in the Police Encyclopedia, 1920. "...there was no doubt whatever as to the identity of the criminal..."

    Whether you chose to believe it or not is your own affair; the main point being that Anderson did not promote the Polish Jew as a 'theory' but as a 'definitely ascertained fact.'

      But what is the ascertained fact he seeks to rely on? He mentions and ID parade but omits important facts surrounding that parade, such as

      where it took place
      when it took place
      who was present?
      who was the suspect referred to?
      who was the witness?
      how was the suspect transported to the ID
      who was present?
      what happened after the positive identification?

      It has been suggested that he may have even been referring to the Sadler ID, but even that is contentious because there was no positive ID made at that time.

      It is unsafe to rely on what he writes, and to rely on that to corroborate the questionable marginalia as some do which also omits many of the same facts is fraught with danger.

        Hello Rj,

        Do excuse my failing memory.. But from what (and when) direct quote is the Police Encyclopedia saying this? In other words, exactly when and where did he say this? We need this "fact" verified, after all.

          Phil, read this. It explains it and gives Anderson's full quote. (he wrote the introduction before his death; the book didn't appear for a year and a half)
