Several of the topics covered in this upcoming webinar seemed like they may be of interest to subscribers of this list. Two presentations will focus on murder investigations as covered by a north Texas news station and another will cover the Estes Kefauver crime committee hearings, which were broadcast on television and watched by 30 million people.


Join archivists across the country as they share fascinating tales of true crime based on materials in their collections. In this two-part event you'll learn about an early twentieth century Philadelphia murder ring, the first private crime lab in America, the art of both police photography and courtroom sketches, a televised corruption trial watched by 30 million in 1951, high crimes on the high seas, Atlanta's Gold Club Case, a 1900 Las Vegas murder mystery, Charles Albright a.k.a. "The Eyeball Killer," the Darlie Routier case, and more! Join us for one or both events over Zoom.

Registration is required and is good for both installments. Sign up at:
