Primary Source Scavenger Hunt

This is are some of the primary sources that I found for our project:

Watkins, M. (1924, Jun 12). LEOPOLD, LOEB TRIAL SET FOR MONDAY, AUG. 4.

Chicago Daily Tribune (1923-1963) Retrieved from https://search-proquest-com.mutex.gmu.edu/docview/180568898?accountid=14541

  • This article details the beginnings of the Leopold and Loeb trial, when the original plea from the two was ‘Not Guilty’. Watkins carefully describes where the two young men were looking when they arrive in the court room and their pompous attitudes towards the entirety of the court scene.

Robertson, H. H. (1924, Jun 08). LEOPOLD AND LOEB STRIP FRIENDSHIP MASK AND RENEW FEUD BORN IN MURDER AFTERMATH.

 The Atlanta Constitution (1881-1945) Retrieved from https://search.proquest.com/docview/499234371?accountid=14541

  • An article from Atlanta that describes the ‘similar’ stories of the kidnap and murder of Bobby Franks; each of the suspects declared that the other one was the one to strike the killing blow.
