Tuesday, May 23, 1933

I met Viola Clark up at Twenty-Seventh and Chestnut and walked to school with her. Practiced dance in Gym today for Field Day.

John Herbert Dillinger, Jr.
June 22, 1903 - July 22, 1934
American gangster and bank robber
Charged but never convicted with the murder of an East Chicago police officer

Dillinger was convicted of assault and battery with intent to rob, and conspiracy
to commit a felony. He was sentenced to 10 to 20 years in the Indiana State Prison
in Michigan City, Indiana, for his crimes. After serving four-and-a-half years, Dillinger
was paroled on May 23, 1933. He immediately returned to a life of crime, robbing banks across
Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin, South Dakota and Iowa. He was killed by federal agents in Chicago.
