Description
As he did with Strange Days, Dangerous Nights, former St. Paul Pioneer Press journalist Larry Millett here combs the newspaper's archives to evoke the "Speed Graphic era," named after the bulky press cameras that captured the bold, sometimes shocking black and white images of mid-20th-century news photography. This time Millett looks at how newspapers followed longer stories in photos, focusing on four sensational murder trials in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota: Arthur DeZeler, accused of bludgeoning his wife Grace and sinking her in a lake; Laura Miller, who ran for help after her married lover was shot; Arnold Axilrod, a dentist who over-sedated his female patients, until one of them was found dead in an alley; and Arnold Larson, a salesman with a winning smile, a bad temper, and a dead doctor.
