New Image of George Lawson

[Between 2009 and 2011, I maintained a TypePad blog, “More Fiends,” intended to update my book Baseball Fiends and Flying Machines. Those posts can still be found in the Wayback Machine, but I stopped updating that site in 2011. Because this WordPress site promotes and updates all my books, I’d like to republish some of those earlier posts.]

Photos of George H. Lawson are so rare that even a new grainy newspaper image is a find. From the front page of the Jan. 11, 1926 Trenton Evening Times:

On this occasion, George was facing drunk and disorderly charges, as well as assault and battery of a police chief. This incident ended his career as an evangelist and anti-KKK crusader.
