Synopsis: The true story of the gangland execution in 1935 of Dutch Schultz, the Beer Baron of the Bronx and king of Harlem's numbers racket. The author shows how the roots of the crime ran from the Lower East side to Park Avenue penthouses and ultimately to City Hall itself.
About the Author: Paul Sann (1914-1986) was one of the great newspapermen of his generation. A lifelong observer of organized crime, he previously wrote about outlaws and frontier desperados in Pictorial History of the Wild West (1954, with James D. Horan), and about gangsters in The Lawless Decade (1957)–his lively account of the Roaring Twenties, which was reprinted by Dover Publications in 2010. An authority on New York City crime and politics–“those Gold Dust Twins of Manhattan civilization”–Sann quit high school in 1931 to become a $12-a-week copyboy and, in turn, a reporter covering all the beats (courts, police, housing): a rewrite man, Washington correspondent, night city editor, managing editor, city editor, and, in 1949, executive editor, running the day-to-day operations of the New York Post for almost 29 years. In addition to writing front page headlines and “putting out” the first edition, even as an executive, Paul Sann never stopped being a reporter. In 1951, he broke the story of Joe DiMaggio’s retirement. In 1955, his explosive interview with Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in international reporting. In 1964, he covered The Beatles’ first invasion of the U.S., and, in 1968, he took to the blood-drenched streets of Chicago to cover the Democratic National Convention. In 1973, he traveled to the Soviet Union with New York Mayor John V. Lindsay under the guise of an “urban affairs expert,” but really to write the story of the dissident Moscow Jews battling to emigrate to Israel. In October of that year, when the Yom Kippur War broke out, Sann, then 59, flew to Israel to report on the war firsthand. KILL THE DUTCHMAN! is the fifth of Sann’s seven works of nonfiction.
