About the Seminar:
This 1913 murder of 13-year-old Mary Phagan at the National Pencil Factory in Atlanta, Georgia set the stage for an ambitious prosecutor; the question as to credibility vs. believability of witnesses; the resurrection of the KKK; the election of a Senator; the downfall of a Governor; the fate of a “Yankee Jew”; and a lifelong secret to be kept by a 14-year-old boy until his 80’s.

This lecture chronicles the events from the arrest of Leo M. Frank to his lynching in Marietta, Georgia in 1915.

Presiding:
Irvan A. “Van” Pearlberg, Program Chair; Senior Assistant Attorney General;
