1937 ATHERTON REPORT ON SFPD CORRUPTION REPUBLISHED SEVENTY YEARS AFTER
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.

SPEAKING ENGAGEMENT - February 22, 7:30 p.m. Counterpulse. I am
presenting my research on the 1930s police corruption scandals in San
Francisco at Counterpulse in San Francisco on Wednesday the 22nd. All are
welcome, free. CounterPULSE, 1310 Mission (at 9th) in San Francisco.

From research for my novel "Bordello Politique" based on the story of
Dolly Fine, San Francisco's most notorious madam.
