Carl Panzram Papers; Box 1, Virtual Folder 5: Typescript of Panzram Manuscript: Part II, Section 1
c. 1928-1930
After Lesser received pages from Panzram's manuscript, his wife typed transcripts of them and organized the work into three parts with several sections.  Lesser then went back over the transcript, making various annotations and notes on the pages, and often cited if he had verified a particular event or crime described by Panzram.  The collection contains photocopies of these transcripts.  This particular section details the various types of torture and abuse used by prisons and reforms schools during Panzram's lifetime. In addition, Panzram explains how his experiences in reform school and prison affected his behavoir outside of those institutions.  He also describes the "Code of the Underworld" as well as a plan to kill a large number of people by blowing up a train and starting a war.
