About this title


Leonard Baldy was born in Chicago. He was a pioneer in law enforcement and traffic safety, and was celebrated for his work in radio and television. Forty years after his death, Chicago newspaper columnist, Neil Steinberg, declared “if ever a Chicago police officer was a celebrity, it was Patrolman Leonard Baldy.” His colleagues remembered him as the nicest man they ever met. He brought respect to the badge during a time of turmoil and scandal on the force. At the height of his popularity, Officer Baldy received nearly 3,000 pieces of fan mail every month. This book is more than a look at the life a Chicago police officer, but a story of a person who made a difference in the daily lives of everyone he met. This book offers a view of a great American as few knew him. It provides insight about the man many have labeled Chicago’s Finest.
