‘The Lid Off Los Angeles’ – Liberty Magazine Examines Corruption in the LAPD and at City Hall

The Lid Off Los Angeles

On Nov. 11, 1939, Liberty magazine began a six-part series by Dwight F. McKinney and Fred Allhoff on the Harry Raymond bombing and the reform movement of Clifford E. Clinton. Liberty also published a response by Dist. Atty. Buron Fitts. The series made an enormous impact in its day, but Liberty is only available on microfilm. So here’s the entire series, uploaded from my files to Archive.org.
