About This Item

1911 WANTED POSTER WITH 2 ORIGINAL MUG SHOTS PASTED DOWN

(WESTERN AMERICANA). Look Out for These Men. $100 Reward for Each or $200 for

Both. These Men are Escapes from Colorado State Penitentiary. Original wanted poster, 12 by

9 inches, with 2 original mug shots pasted down below the headline, each 1¾ by 2¼ inches.

Colorado State Penitentiary, Thos. J. Tynan, Warden, Canon City, Colo., June 6, 1911.

Ross Hollingworth, 25 and Curtis T. Day, 29, escaped while working in a surveying party.

Hollingsworth, a bookkeeper, was serving a 13½- to 16-year term for forgery and larceny. Day

was serving a 10- to 15-year term for rape. Hollingsworth must have been captured, because in

1914 his sentence was slightly reduced "on account of his unusual and valuable service in

drawing plans." House Journal, General Assembly of Colorado (1915) 67. This appears to be an

unrecorded broadside. Slight folds, with repair tape on verso; moderate browning; a few small

stains; light edgewear; o/w very nice. Scarce.
