TitleBad Day at Old Mission
AbstractStory of the career of "Harvey Bailey, the nation's most prolific and successful bank robber" during the 1920s and early 1930s, living "amidst the most luxurious apartments and shops" in Kansas City at the Country Club Plaza, from "wealth derived from masterminding. ..the largest cash haul in bank robbing history," among other heists, until his capture in 1932 by the Federal Bureau of Investigation during a golf game.
NotesPage 49: "Not only did the general public show admiration for those who chose to relieve the bankers of their money, [sic] even fellow criminals looked in great awe at the successful ones such as Bailey, "Pretty Boy" Floyd, and others who made their living in this manner. It was a true reflection of the times."
