Al Capone and the 1933 World’s Fair

Retired KCPD Intelligence Detective Gary Jenkins interviews William Hazelgrove, the author of Al Capone and the 1933 World’s Fair. He learns that this World’s Fair was one of the critical reasons the government created the special squad of Treasury agents to take Capone down by any means necessary. Mr. Hazelgrove describes how a group of anonymous businessmen called the Secret 6 pressured the Federal government to take down Capone. The negative publicity generated by the 1929 St. Valentine’s Day massacre was still in the public’s imagination. They wanted the fairgoers to feel safe. We learn how the long career of the famous Fan Dancer, Sally Rand, was launched by this event.
