About this Item

First edition. Very scarce. Hardcover in navy blue cloth stamped in white. 253 pp. Illustrated with photograpgs. Generally vert good, some rubbing to the extremities and some staining to the covers. Privately printed laudatory biography by " a friend" (very possibly his wife) of S. Glenn Young began his law enforcemrnt career as a Texas Ranger and became an agressive U.S. Treasury Prohibition agent who eventually became a major figure in the Ku Klux Klan. Young was fired by the Treasury Depatment for killing a bootlegger (he was acquitted at trial) and also for other unbecoming conduct, considering him so agressive that he thought he was "law unto himself". He was recruited in 1923 by the KKK in Williamson County, Illinois to assume leadership, both of the local organization and also local law enforcement, particularly in and around Herrin. Even the Klan expelled him, in 1924, and in 1925 he was shot to death by a deputy sheriff. In a 2012 news story, NBC named Young on of the 12 most corrupt puiblic figures in Illinois history.
