From Ralph L. Ross to Estes Kefauver

Description: 

Letter from Ralph L. Ross to Estes Kefauver, U.S. Senator from Tennessee and chair of the Senate Special Committee to Investigate Crime in Interstate Commerce. Ross writes that he, while serving with the Iola, Kansas, Police Department in 1934, arrested several armed men after a car accident. He writes that those men were suspected of an attempt to murder Kansas City gangster Mike LaCapra, and suggests they "could give valuable information on crime in Kansas City." Ross wishes Kefauver luck on his investigation into Kansas City organized crime.
