This is a friendly place to discuss the famous case of Leo Frank and Mary Anne Phagan (1913-1915). Although most modern publications have rendered their verdict, there is still - hopefully - some room for reconsideration. Let us know your thoughts. The original Trial Transcript has been 'lost' since the 1960s, but there are several ways to approach this continuing problem. The picture above shows part of the letter that Leo Frank purportedly wrote to his Uncle on the afternoon of April 26, 1913 (the original was probably handwritten). The National Pencil Co., located on S. Forsyth St. in Atlanta, was eventually replaced with the Sam Nunn Federal Center. It had been founded here in 1908, with the help of Moses Frank, in the old Venable Building (briefly the Granite Hotel), and at the time of the crime (Confederate Memorial Day), had about 170 employees on three floors (2-3-4). The Clark Woodenware Co., on the first floor for 2 years, had recently departed, in Jan of 1913 (Montag's had left in 1908 for nearby Nelson St). Original pencils are eagerly sought.
