From August 1938 through February 1939, The People v. Hines was a front-page fixture of New York’s Daily News. Readers consumed twice-daily updates on the illegal gambling, bribery, violence, and corruption that linked Democrat politician Jimmy Hines with organized crime. This Fall, the Library's rare book exhibition showcases the recent acquisition of an archive of original drafts and sketches by the two staff artists assigned to illustrate the trial. Embedded in the reporters’ section, and documenting the key moment of the trial, artists Joe Kidd and S.J. Woolf also left a compelling visual narrative of the American courtroom and the judicial process. You'll find the exhibit in the Library's Reference Room on Library Level 3 and outside the Rare Book Room on Library Level 2.
This exhibit runs daily through December 1.
