RipperCon 2018, Jack the Ripper-True Crime conference to be held in Baltimore, Maryland this coming April, is going to be a big one so don't miss out. Our talks will be held at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in the College's 90-year-old Italianate Main Building in Room 110 off Statuary Hall (see images below).
RipperCon is the ONLY North American conference to be held during the 130-year anniversary of the Ripper murders. We have only 50 places available for registrants, so be sure to book early.
Meanwhile, we have a trivia contest going on, one of a series of trivia questions to be posted over the coming months. A precursor to the hour-long trivia contest with some worthwhile prizes planned for Sunday afternoon -- just to keep everyone on their toes!
What is a tintype?
First to answer will receive a genuine period tintypue -- er, whatever it is. Good luck, everyone! (NOTE: Mr. Hutchinson, you are "recused" from answering.)
