Carl Panzram Papers; Box 1, Virtual Folder 2: Correspondence from Panzram to Lesser
In this correspondence between Lesser and Panzram, Panzram describes daily prison life, trinkets he made in prison, inventions he had devised, his feelings on prison and his crimes, and more.  In one letter, Panzram casually mentions that he killed his boss in the prison laundry.  Panzram's final letters allude to his attempted suicide and his contentment at receiving the death penalty.  Also included are letters that Panzram wrote to the Society for the Abolishment of Capital Punishment and President Herbert Hoover urging them not to ask the government to repeal his sentence because he was sane when he committed his crimes.  These letters are organized chronologically within the folder.
