Black Dahlia: Going Digital



I am slowly digitizing all the interviews I have conducted into Los Angeles in the 1940s and it’s so nice to hear them again. This week, I did Fred Okrand (d. 2002) of the ACLU; Betty Rowland, the 1940s “Ball of Fire” burlesque dancer; and Irene Tresun (d. 2013), who gave me a tour of City Hall in 1997, when it was under reconstruction after the Northridge quake. I am so thankful that I spoke to these folks when I did. Even if they had little direct connection to the Black Dahlia case, they gave me a fabulous amount of background detail on Los Angeles history.
