This post is part of an ongoing series featuring items from the newly acquired Julio Mario Santo Domingo Collection.
I recently discovered two issues of a weekly French Police newspaper aptly titled Police Hebdo published in October of 1947. The publication appears to cover extremely sensationalized information and news about various crimes and criminals both in France and around the world. The articles from this issue seem to focus mostly on drug crime and organized crime.
about J. Edgar Hoover’s (referred to as E.J. Hoover) work against organized crime in America primarily detailing information about Al Capone. And the Americans are credited with helping French police stop a counterfeit scheme dealing with U.S. dollars. To read all about it you can find Police Hebdo. Paris : Societe parisienne d’edition, 1947-1948. in Widener Library’s collection.
