About this Item

Broadside poster. Approximately 43cm. x 56cm. Black lettering and a large woodcut image of Wells printed in reddish brown on regular weight off-white paper. Curled from having been rolled (perhaps for decades) but should flatten okay and display nicely. Wells was sentenced to death by a California court for throwing a cuspidor at a guard while Wells was serving a life sentence. California Governor Earl Warren refused to commute the sentence. Is it any wonder that Republicans felt betrayed by Warren when his thinking changed after he was appointed to the Supreme Court? Wells' death sentence was eventually commuted by Governor Goodwin Knight. Bookseller Inventory # 63573
