St. Louis Rogues' Gallery
St. Louis Rogues' Gallery

The St. Louis Police Department’s photographic rogues’ gallery was instrumental in helping identify people suspected of committing crimes in the mid-1800s. The Missouri History Museum Press has gathered together nearly 200 of these photos in its newest title—and first interactive eBook—Captured and Exposed: The First Police Rogues’ Gallery in America. Join author Shayne Davidson as she shares how she scoured newspapers, federal censuses, and court and prison records to track down information about the accused in order to find the human stories behind the subjects’ haunted eyes, direct expressions, and disguise attempts.

Presented by the Missouri History Museum Press.
