DISAPPEARANCE. COUNTERPULSE TALK NEXT WEDNESDAY 2.22 - 1310 MISSION 7:30pm
Announcing the online publication of the long-lost 1937 Atherton Report on
police vice and graft in San Francisco. For the first time in over seventy
years, the 1937 investigation into police corruption in San Francisco has
been transcribed from old newspaper clippings and made available online,
free. The original report was found to have mysteriously disappeared from
the county clerk's office in 1939.
