Wednesday, May 17, 1933

Went back to school again today. We hd a Civics test. I made 90 1/2 on it out of 100 1/2.

Thomas Leonard "Tommy" Carroll
Bank robber and member of the Dillinger gang
1901 - June 7, 1934
An ex-boxer, Carroll was first arrested in 1920 and continued to have run-ins with
the law (when he wasn't in prison) from then on. He was arrested in St. Paul, MN,
on May 17, 1933 for possession of burglar's tools but was able to negotiate his
release and the charges against him were dropped. It was after this that Carroll
joined the Dillinger gang. He was killed in a police shootout in Waterloo, IA.
